Family always came first and foremost for Dick; over the years he and Sharon attended countless ball games, dance recitals, and band concerts to support their children and grandchildren. He was loving and caring; many life lessons were learned from Dick and he made sure his children knew the value of a strong work ethic.

He enjoyed following Iowa Hawkeye Football and Basketball, the Green Bay Packers, and the St. Louis Cardinals. After retirement he and Sharon enjoyed traveling across the United States and spent many winters in Sun City, AZ.

He was a lifelong member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, having been baptized, received his First Communion, confirmed and married all within the walls of St. Joseph’s.

Richard is survived by his wife, Sharon; children, Steven (Jennifer) Kloberdanz, Jennie (John) Pint, and Jane (David) Bergan; grandchildren, Shannon (Tyler Fritsch) and Trevor Kloberdanz, John Pint and Carolyn (Nic) Peiffer, and Hannah(Josh) Mixdorf, Aaron, and Madeline Bergan; two great grandchildren, Kayden and Noah; brother, Ronald (Nancy) Kloberdanz; and many extended relatives and friends.
