George Richard "Dick" Erdtmann, 81, of Bolivia passed away Saturday, June 2, 2018, at his home.
Born in Ellsworth, Kan., Aug. 21, 1936, Dick was the son of the late George Edward and Almira Hardenburger Erdtmann. Dick was a retired aerospace engineer, and worked on several projects including the Hexagon and Hubble satellite projects. One of his hobbies was woodworking, which he was quite accomplished at using various exotic woods to make cutting boards and enjoyed selling at craft fairs in the area. Dick was also an avid golfer who enjoyed playing with his family and friends. Dick was a proud Eagle Scout and that accomplishment was made even more special last Saturday when his grandson, Nathan, earned and received his Eagle Scout rank.
