Richard was born March 4th, 1944. He was proud to have served for the United States Army for several years with an honorable discharge, several medals, and honors in 1967.
We are proud to say that he was married to his wonderful wife, Loretta Case (Peterson), for over 48 years. They were such a loving couple and an inspiration to their seven surviving children. Richard's love for his wife shined through in everything that he did. He was so kind and caring when taking care of the love of his life. He was so proud to be married to his wife that he never ever took off his wedding ring.
Richard enjoyed his retirement days doing various crafts including wood working and native crafts including drum making, carving, and painting. Richard was an avid collector of fine things including watches and coins. He loved to fish, hunt, and camp; basically anything outdoors. Richard also enjoyed bowling, and loaning his sons tools. One thing that we will always remember about Richard is his love for reading and being a lifelong learner. And who could forget his love of napping and online shopping!
Richard left behind a very large family that would not have been here without him. We will live on forever in his legacy and will miss him dearly everyday from now until we see him again.
Richard left behind (but not forgotten) his wife Loretta Case (Peterson) of Shelton Washington; Son Steve K. Case of Parma, Son Greg Giles of Las Vegas Nevada, Vickie L Horn of Nampa, Beckie L Lezon-Ferreira of Nampa, Rickie L Ramage of Shelton Washington, Lawton "Jeb" Case of Shelton Washington, Leighton "Jim" Case of Nampa. He also left behind twenty two grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. He was such an amazing man and easy to love that we would also like to mention that he was called Grandpa, Dad, Father in Law, Uncle, and friend by so many people that will dearly and greatly miss him. When you make a friend with Dick Case you will have a friend for life.
Sadly he was preceded in death by his mother Esther Bloxham (Henkle), his Father Chuck Bloxham, His dad C.O. Case, His Brother Jim Case, and his daughter Brenda Couch.
We have a PayPal account set up for any monetary donations to help his beloved wife Loretta Case. Loretta1351@icloud.com.
