Reid W. “Rick” Olsen (1951~2020) Reid W. “Rick” Olsen passed away March 19, 2020, in Price, Utah. Born in Standardville, Utah, he graduated from the College of Eastern Utah (CEU) in 1971, then from Utah State University in 1973, with a bachelor’s degree in industrial technology. While attending CEU, Rick began employment with Hiawatha Mine, which started his long career in the industry. He later worked at US Steel Geneva Mine and Braztah Mining Co., then Soldier Canyon Coal Company where he remained until 2001, as the general mine manager. Rick was an integral part of open- ing the Dugout Canyon Mine in 2001, then transferred to Skyline Mine in 2005. In 2007, he retired from the mines to open BODEC, Inc., an electrical contracting company. He retired from there in 2014. His true love of mining brought many exciting opportunities. He travelled the world meeting with dif- ferent corporations, speaking at mining conventions, even instructing mining at CEU. At one time, he was the president of the Southeastern Utah Energy Producers Association. An avid sportsman, Rick enjoyed big game hunting and fishing. He also had a passion for restoring old cars, but his most prized possession was the cabin he built with his sons and son-in-law. It was a place of solitude and peace where he spent countless hours building rock walls, landscaping, and making the cabin his masterpiece. Rick is survived by his wife Shelly; son Jared; daughter Jennifer (Dennis); grandchildren Jaxson, Riley, and Delanie; mother Lois; and siblings Ginger (Ernie), Steven (Gail), and Alan (Deanna). He was preceded in death by his father Reid and son Danny. Tommy Carl Bussell (1934~2020) Tommy Carl Bussell, 86, of Tomball, Texas, passed away April 2, 2020. He had a big personality every- one loved and appreciated. After graduating high school in 1952, he and his father formed T.C. Bussell and Son, constructed their first drill rig and water truck, then started drilling domestic water wells in the Houston area. The company expanded into commercial and industrial systems, eventually encompassing municipal systems and a divi- sion for water plant construction. The businesses were sold to D.Q.E.-Aquasource in 1998, and Tommy worked as Vice President-Water Construction for Aquasource Construction, Inc. When the opportunity arose in 2003 for him to repurchase the assets, there were three satellite companies operating as AquaUtility Construction L.P. After the acquisition, two of the companies were sold and the remaining once again became a family- owned business - Bussell & Sons, LLC. During his long career, Tommy served on the Water Well Drillers Board for 12 years; on the board, as well as president of the Lone Star Water Well Association (now the Texas Ground Water Association); on the board of the National Water Well Association; and was president of the American Ground Water Trust. Tommy is survived by his son Craig (Mandy); son Troy (Karla); three grand- children; and five great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Loyce and son Carl. The management and staff of WWDR extend their condolences to the family and friends of these gentlemen. Lest we forget... 34 JUNE 2020 WorldWide Drilling Resource ®
