Richard Louis Aschoff, also known as "Dick" to his friends and family, passed away quietly at his home March 27, 2013, with his son and family at his side.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born in Sioux Falls, S.D., in 1933, he lived a full life. Although he lived many places, he called Merrill "home." He loved the small farming community and what it offered to his family. He retired from Weyerhaeuser Co., only to work through his retirement; he always insisted being idle wasn't for him.
He was preceded in death by his oldest daughter Sandra Smith.
Survivors include his son Barry Aschoff and daughters Roxanne Baltazor and Jody Fisher along with several grandchildren he held close to his heart.
He will be missed.
No services will be held at his request.
For he entered this life with a quiet whisper so shall he exit: God bless and God speed Dad, know you were loved and will be missed.
