Richard J. Suehring
SUEHRING, Richard John, 82, of Titusville, beloved husband, father, stepfather, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and brother, died unexpectedly on Saturday, February 1, 2014. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on September 28, 1931 to John and Freda Suehring. He served in the United States Air Force in Korea during that conflict and returned home to become a carpenter, builder, owner/operator of Spring Hill Genie & Door Company in Spring Hill, Florida, and then "retired" due to rheumatoid arthritis. He was fortunate to have been put on a trial program to test the efficacy of a drug which is now commonly prescribed for that condition. The improvement for him was such that he itched to be doing something and keeping busy, so he ended his career on the day of his death doing handyman jobs. He was a lifetime member of VFW Post 4228 in Titusville.
He is survived by his wife, Rei-Ann Suehring, his sons, James (Carolyn) Suehring of New Castle, CO, and John (Gigi) Suehring, of Menomonee Falls, WI, his daughter, Julia S. (Terry) Boyle of Saukville, WI, stepsons Collin (Suzanne) Papke of Ladson, SC, and Brian (Nicole) Papke of Orlando, FL, as well as by the following grandchildren: Michael, Ashley, Benjamin, Angela, Zander, Hannah, Jeremy, Madeline and Rachel; and the following great-grandchildren: Amaya Grace and Riley Gracelyn. He is also survived by his brother Raymond (Joan) Suehring of Yuma, AZ, his sister Rose (Gene) Mancel of Rosholt WI, and his sister Ruth Falk of Milwaukee, WI and numerous nieces and nephews and their families.
A visitation is scheduled for Thursday, February 6, 2014 from 2-3 PM with a celebration of his life being held immediately following at 3 PM at the Newcomer Funeral Home Chapel. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
