The Guest Book is expired.
Oct 19, 1928 - Nov 15, 2013
Richard E. Longwell, age 85, of Omaha, had a peaceful departure from this Earth on Friday. Richard was married to Mary Empkey for 60 years. They had 5 wonderful children, Peggy, Tim, Jeff, David, and Michael. Their marriage was one of hard work, caring and compassion. Those traits flow through their children and grandchildren. He was an Air Force Staff Sergeant during the Korean War. Richard was patriotic and extremely proud of serving this country. He worked for the United States Post Office for 33 years. After his retirement, he was asked what his greatest accomplishments were in life. Without hesitation he said that his children developed a strong work ethic and good character, and that made him very proud. Richard was a humble man. Anyone who had the good fortune of knowing him was better for it.
