Richard Duane Focht, 81, passed away peacefully of kidney and heart failure on Sunday, January 17, 2010.

He is preceded in death by his father and mother, Roscoe and Blanche; his siblings, Irene, Clark, Ross, Laura, Stanley, and Robert. He is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Maysel; and his daughters, Delaine and Susan.

Richard was born in Vallisca, Iowa in 1928. The family moved to Glendale, California in the early 1940's where he graduated from Hoover High School. He was a Navy veteran of World War II and was a member of the Masonic Lodge.

He and his wife, Maysel moved to Northern California, living in Paradise, Corning, and then in Chico for the last 14 years, where he worked for Biggs Electric until his retirement.

"Dick", as he was called by his friends, loved singing, gardening, and observing the wonders of nature. He and Maysel enjoyed each day together and loved one another deeply.

He was a kind and loving man. He will be greatly missed and will remain in our hearts always.

Bidwell Chapel is handling arrangements. Memorial services are pending.
