Rich dedicated his working years as a foreman for a paint company. He later worked at Thousand Hills Golf Resort for eight years, where he made a hole-in-one. His leisure time was spent golfing, bowling, watching television, camping and traveling.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a son-in-law, Brad Williams.
Rich is survived by his loving wife, Shirley Harris; son, Keith Harris of California; a son, Kris Harris and wife JoAnn of California; and three daughters, Nancy Williams of Ridgedale, Missouri, Karen Piche and husband Peter of California, Julie Cortez and husband Darin of California; six grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
Services will be private at a later time. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in memory of Rich may be made to the local humane society of your choice.
