FERRON - Curtis C. "Pooh" Caldwell left this world suddenly and joined many loving family members on Sept. 9, 2013 in Orem.
He was born May 2, 1957 in St. George to Pat E. and Laverde Cannon Caldwell. He married the love of his life, Carla Wild, on Nov. 7, 1987 in Ferron.
His family moved to Ferron when he was in 1st grade, and he spent the rest of his life there. After high school, he began working in the coal mines where he made many friends. He took great pride in being a coal miner and was a proud member of the UMWA.
He loved working in his yard, watching the grass grow and raising vegetables to share with family and friends. He was an avid golfer and waited patiently for that phone call every Sunday morning. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family, especially while camping, riding four-wheelers, and his back yard BBQ's.
He is survived by his wife, Carla; children: Jessica Caldwell, Ferron, Willie McCourt, Ferron, and Tiffany (Russ) Bloomer, Price; grandchildren: Sabrina, Dezmon, Liam, Cassidy, Gabriel; brother/sisters-in-law: Don (Star) Wild, Ann (Ken) Carroll, Sharlene (Jon) Chiaretta, Suzy (Les) Mortensen; and many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Bill Caldwell; father- and mother-in-law, Owen and Norma Wild; and baby grandson, Jordan McCourt.

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
