He was the third of five children and spent his childhood, youth, and early adult life in West Jordan until recently moving to St. George, Utah. He was unexpectedly caught in a dust storm and killed in a car accident on July 25, 2021, along with his youngest son, Rider, his sister-in-law, a niece, and a nephew. He is survived by his wife Keshia, daughter Faith (16), and son Ran (14). \r\n\r\nRace was an amazing athlete, a loyal friend, and a fierce competitor. He attended West Jordan High School where he was the 145 lb. 5A State Wrestling Champion his senior year. Following his graduation he served a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Tampa Bay, Florida. Upon returning from his mission, Race fell head-over-heels in love with Keshia and her daughter Faith Bodine, and they were married in the Salt Lake City Temple on December 28th, 2005. Their family was soon blessed with their two sons, Ran and Rider. \r\n\r\nTheir beautiful family loved to play games including “Would you rather …” and heads up as well as hosting make your own pizza nights. As his kids got older, Race loved watching them pursue their passions and was intent on them “becoming champions” in whatever endeavors they pursued. His love for his children was equaled by that for his wife and he lived to make sure that Keshia knew how beautiful she was every day and would do anything to make her happy. She was his very best friend and loyal companion. \r\n\r\nRace was always the life of the party and was famous for his rendition of “Happy Birthday”. He loved to tease and had quite the knack for it. He put this talent to good use and was always able to provoke his family and friends while at the same time making them feel special because as good as he was at teasing, he was twice as good at loving. \r\n\r\nRace lived his life with the motto “live wild”. He loved to rock climb, sky dive, and fight. He was an adventurer and dreamer who was passionate about life and his family. Race spent much of his adult life training as an MMA fighter and capped off his career with a fight at Madison Square Garden. \r\n\r\nHis life will be forever cherished by those who knew him and his legendary personality will continue to motivate us as we all strive to become champions.
