Richard Joel Beress Obituary
Richard "Rick" Beress was born on Nov. 24, 1949 to Sidney and Goldie Beress, and passed away April 1, 2016 with his wife and two of his daughters by his side. Rick was born and raised in Burbank and later moved to Foresthill, CA with his family. He grew up loving to play sports and later become known as "Coach" to many, including his kids. Aside from sports, he had a passion for rebuilding, restoring and racing vintage sports cars. Rick was often defined by his friendly, talkative nature, along with being a devoted family man. He had the ability to befriend anyone and was genuinely compassionate to all. He retired as Postmaster from the US Postal Service after 34 years, where he had built a strong community and was seen as a mentor by many. He was a selfless husband, son, father and grandfather. Rick is survived by his wife of 36 years, Wendy; his five children: Michelle Beress, Jennifer and Justin Jackson, Rachel and Bill Lauesen, Debra and Matt Mangalin, and David Beress; his grandson, Pierce Jackson; his mother, Goldie; and his brother, Paul.
