Richard (Dick) Carl Rahn, 89, went to be with the Lord on Jan. 10, 2016, in El Paso, Texas. He was born Nov. 10, 1926, in Wheaton, Ill., to Marguereite and Robert Rahn.

Richard Rahn retired from the US Army in 1966. He served in China, Korea, Alaska, and France. He worked for Zia Therapy Center for seven years, after retirement and then worked as a budget analyst with Civil Service.

Richard was a charter member of Cottonwood Christian Fellowship church. He dedicated his life to Christ and taught Sunday School to the physically challenged for seven years.

He loved fishing for trout in the Penasco River and catfish at Elephant Butte, N.M. He loved golf and played every day after retiring. He loved people and will be greatly missed.

Richard and Betty (Smith) were married in Los Angeles in the Harmony Chapel and recently celebrated their 65th anniversary, Richard and Betty have two children: David Lynn Rahn and his wife, Patricia, of Rifle, Colo.; and Julie Ann Thomas and her husband, Darrell Kent of Phoenix, Ariz.
