James Ricky Neumeyer

December 18, 1955 — May 10, 2024

Centerville, UT

James Ricky Neumeyer (68), was born December 18, 1955, in Maywood, Los Angeles, to LouAnn and Don Brown. His passing on May 10, 2024, has left a big hole in our hearts. He is preceded in death by his parents and his grandson, Nickolas Neumeyer. He is survived by his wife, Linda Neumeyer; his three daughters, Tiffany (Kevin) Brown, Ashley (Brent) Mangum, and Lindsey (David) Erickson; his two sons, Casey (Nichole) Neumeyer and Cody (Marisa) Neumeyer; his two sisters, Carri (Brent) Hunt and Cheryl Riss; and his 15 grandkids.

Rick grew up in Centerville, Utah. He attended Centerville Elementary, Centerville Jr. High, and Viewmont High School. After graduation, Rick served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the San Diego California Mission, from 1975 to 1977. Rick and Linda met while Linda was working at Carmack’s, her family’s restaurant. Rick went in to order a meal and it was love at first sight. After a short courtship, they were married on June 2, 1978, in the Salt Lake City Temple. They lived for a short time in Woods Cross, Utah; Boise, Idaho; and Tigard, Oregon; before moving back to Davis County where they raised their family. Together, Rick and Linda ran Carmack’s Catering and the café at the Eaglewood Golf Course for many years until their retirement in 2019. Everybody loved Rick’s burgers—cooked the Carmack’s way. Rick and Linda also provided wedding planning and event catering at Eaglewood. 

Rick was a kind, tenderhearted, and selfless man who led a Christ-like life by serving others. He loved to give, help, and be with others, especially his family. Whether shopping for some new tool or gadget, four wheeling, snowmobiling, eating out, going to movies, or watching them at home, camping, vacationing, watching the grandkids in sports or performances, and many other adventures, he enjoyed these activities the most when he was with the friends and family he loved. Rick’s love of the outdoors once allowed him to use his snowmobile to save the lives of some U.S. Coast Guard crewmembers whose helicopter had crashed in remote Utah mountains about 50 miles east of Salt Lake City, in March of 2010.

Rick loved his baseball caps and would often put them on the young grandchildren saying “papa’s hat” to get their attention. He was a big tease, but the grandkids loved him anyway. He was always “just stopping by” to drop off gifts and get the grandkids to go places with him; his grandkids were the joy of his life. Rick was also a fix it man who would go out of his way to help others and he always had the right tool for the job. Whether plumbing, running wires, carpentry, or painting, he knew how to get it done. In his generosity, he would always help others for free, often buying materials, tools, and snacks. 

In addition to serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ, he was a lifelong member who held various callings in his ward. He also enjoyed telling his kids and grandkids about his mission and about how important it was to have faith in and a testimony of Jesus Christ. Although our hearts are broken and we miss him dearly, we know that our loss is temporary. We will see him again because of the atonement and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
