Richard Paul Compton AKA "R.C.", "Mr. Rich", and "POP", age 66, United States Army Veteran, of Montgomery Texas, passed away Thursday, March 8, 2018.

R.C is the Son of George and Maxine Compton, beloved husband of 44 loving years to Dottie Compton (Wrona) who kindly put up with his love of music, the Houston Astros and the Chicago Blackhawks; Loving father of Uriah (Tara) Compton, Cindi (Scott) Maynard, and Amy Wrona. Brother of Nancy (Compton) Lewis and uncle to Jason (Lyndsey) Wrona, Chris Wrona and a host of others, who all enjoyed his kind, humorous, and life of the party nature; Proud grandfather of Seth Compton, Melissa (Maynard) Whittingham, Jake, Joe and McKenzie Maynard, Ethan and Knox Wrona, and great-uncle to Dylan and Cody Wrona, who will hopefully remember his playful nature and love for fun and games.

R.C. worked tirelessly day in and day out for each one of his 48 adult years. From the military, to the steel mills of Chicago, Allis Chalmers, and Minute Lube. His final 27 years of service were completed as a Quality Control Engineer for Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America; which included 10 hour days and a 1 hour drive each way (uphill both ways). He worked hard, but he loved even harder, even if it was not always said. R.C. always strived to provide for family, friends, loved ones, and all the students/graduates of New Life Women's Center. His dedication to God showed through his dedication to others. He was a hardworking and hard loving man, who cared deeply for those around him; simply being happy with enjoying the peacefulness of the country, a long ride on his Harley, or the feel of a 6lb bass on his pole.

Mr. Rich, thank you for everything, you will be forever in our hearts and never forgotten! Tell God and John Lennon we said hi!
