Richard H. "Dick" Eiting

Hollandtown - Dick Eiting, age 85, passed into the loving arms of Jesus, surrounded by his entire family on July 18, 2021. He was born on May 23, 1936, son of the late Elmer and Magdalen (Nackers) Eiting. Dick married the love of his life, Betty Van De Loo on November 25, 1959 at St. Francis Catholic Church, and have celebrated 61 years of marriage.

Dick worked at White Clover Dairy for 45 years before his retirement. He was also involved with the Hollandtown Sanitary District for many years and volunteered at the St. Paul Home.

Dick was a founding member and the longtime director of the St. Francis Men's Choir. Dick also supported just about anything else "Hollandtown". He always supported local businesses (especially Van Abel's) and worked on keeping Hollandtown thriving. He was a quiet leader in the community.
