In Rememberence of Archie Archuleta

|||| |||| ||||

It is with great sadness and respect that we mourn the loss of a beloved and influential west-side community member, Robert “Archie” Archuleta, who passed away on January 25, 2019. Archie spent a lifetime working for social justice, peace and equality; was the founding leader of Utah’s Chicano Movement; and served on countless boards and commissions throughout his life. A well-attended and moving celebration of his life was held on March 2 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. Our condolences go out to his family, especially his wife, Lois. He is sorely missed and will always be remembered.

We would be remiss not to pay tribute to Archie in The West View, since he was a longtime supporter, cheerleader and contributor to it. He served and guided West View Media on the Board of Directors for six years. It was Archie’s hope that The West View would continue to tell our authentic stories and bridge the divide between east and west sides of the city.
