I can't remember the last time I saw my Uncle. I remember as a child going to spend time at the farm. Getting to ride the tractor and being asked why I was turning the wheel so much. LOL I told him its what I see in the movies. It was my very first time driving and I owe it all to him. Rest in Peace. You will be missed. Love, Walt

Richard touched my heart and spirit so many times. He and his wife brought joy, faith, and love to every service they attended at Prince of Peace and I remember his words of encouragement as I went through seminary. We talked about God, faith, family, farming, and the joy of living each day. He will always be remembered. Blessings and prayers to his wonderful family. Lauren Mache

I met Richard and Bertha about 7 years ago when I went to see about cleaning house for them. I could tell we would be friends. Kind and loving people. Richard would always talk about his kids who he was so proud of. And always would speak of his loving wife, Bertha. It was a privilege meet this family. RIP my friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I had the privilege of knowing Richard the last 8 years or so thru church. He was a warm, kind, gentle man, with a quick smile that could light up a room. My condolences to his family, particularly his "cheerleaders ". He's with Bertha now. The world was better for having them in it.

I always had a lot of love and respect for my Uncle Dick and always looked forward to visiting with him and his family. I am so thankful that I was able to see him when I was back east for my 50-year reunion. He will be missed.

I remember in Hayward Wisconsin how my grandpa helped me save a small fish from dying. He was a kind, caring, and wonderful grandfather.
