Richard C. Ecker, son of the late Richard F. Ecker and the late Doris M. Ecker, brother of the late Scott F. Ecker, of West Palm Beach, FL, passed away on June 1, 2013 at age 66. Richard is survived by his son Richard E. Ecker, his sister Darelyn Kazimierczuk, ex-wife Fran Ecker, and many nieces and nephews. His loving son, sister, and ex-wife stood by his side during his final weeks. Richard served in the Navy by completing two tours in Vietnam where he received the honor of the Purple Heart. He graduated from the University of Michigan where he also received an MBA and then later received his law degree from Wayne State. He pursued a successful law career before running his own business. Richard had a passion for the University of Michigan, and could be heard singing "Hail to the Victors" when the football team was winning. Besides being the best grill-master, he had the biggest heart and a determination unmatched by anyone. He will be deeply missed and never forgotten. Military services will be held June 17th at South Florida National Cemetery at 2:45 PM located at 6501 S. State Road 7 Lake Worth, FL 33449 (Lane 3). A small private gathering will be held after the service. Donations in Richard's name may be made to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (1-800-340-HERO).
