The Guest Book is expired.
Richard Allen Bernhardt, 49, passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 15, 2013, at his residence in Peoria, Ariz. Richard was born Aug. 14, 1963, to Harold and Gladys Bernhardt in Sheboygan. Richard attended St. Paul's Lutheran school and Sheboygan Lutheran High school. He was united in marriage with Marianne Nelson in Phoenix, Ariz., on March 10, 2001.
In addition to his wife, Marianne, Richard is also survived by one son, John Curtis (Ashley) Bernhardt, Buckeye, Ariz.; two daughters, Talia Nelson, Peoria, Ariz.; and Christi Helling, Wisconsin. Richard is also survived by two sisters, Betty Ninmer, Sheboygan, Wis.; Joanne Raatz, Sheboygan, Wis.; two brothers, Harold (Nancy) Bernhardt, Howards Grove, Wis.; Daniel (Karen) Bernhardt, Sheboygan; and numerous nephews, nieces and grandchildren.
Richard was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Gladys Bernhardt; one brother, David Bernhardt; and one brother-in-law, Robert Raatz.
Richard was a proud, caring and generous husband, father, brother, and grandfather. He always put others needs ahead of his own, and will be greatly missed in this world.
I was once told that life is like a rose garden. God seems to pick the best ones. Today this is true.
