SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Jan. 11, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A public memorial service for Randy Horiuchi, a longtime fixture on Utah’s political scene, will be held Friday.
An announcement from Salt Lake County said the memorial will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Calvin L. Rampton Salt Palace Convention Center, 100 W. Temple, Salt Lake City.
Horiuchi passed away at a Salt Lake area hospital on Nov. 19 of last year, at age 61. He served multiple terms in Salt Lake County government, as both a Salt Lake County Councilman and County Commissioner.
Horiuchi’s health had deteriorated recent years after he suffered a stroke in January of 2012.
Utah Governor Herbert issued a statement when Horiuchi passed, praising him for his years of public service.
“Randy Horiuchi championed the great State of Utah for more than 25 years, giving generously of his time, talents, and resources to enhance the lives of Utah residents, particularly in Salt Lake County,” Herbert said.
Horiuchi was also pivotal in the expansion of the Salt Palace Convention Center, where the service in honor of his life will be held.
Free parking is available in the Salt Palace parking garage, accessible from 200 South.
