It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Richard Charles Herrick, 86, of Manistee on February 5th, 2021.

Known as Dick, Dad, Grandpa, Papa Richard and Great Grandpa to most people who loved him, Richard was kind, funny and always there for his family. He had a fun, eventful life and everyone who met him was blessed to have known him.

Richard was born on May 27, 1934 in Hillman, Michigan to Stanley and Johanna (Brandt) Herrick. Growing up in Hillman he worked on the family farm and graduated from Hillman High School, Class of 1952. He served in the United States Army during the Korean War. In 1956 he married Ruth Baugher. During this time he continued farming and worked on the Grand Trunk Railroad. After a lot of hard work and dedication, Richard worked his way up to Railroad Engineer! Richard and Ruth were blessed with six children and later, ten grandchildren. Richard loved being a grandpa!

After retiring from the railroad, Richard married Cathie Cole in 1995 and gained two more children and three more grandchildren. Him and Cathie drove all over the country in the coolest campervans, visiting places such as Arizona and New York City. He never stopped talking about going out west and especially loved New Mexico. In addition to traveling and spending time with his family, Richard enjoyed playing games at the casino and eating sweets. He always had a bag of jellybeans or butterscotch candies in his van and never turned down desserts!

Richard was preceded in death by his parents Stanley and Johanna Herrick, sister Charlotte Nelson & husband Fred, brother Stanley Herrick & wife Doris, brother-in-law; Bill Pfafmann and son Kevin Herrick. Brother-in-law Bob Antilla followed him in death on February 11th.

He is survived by his wife Cathie; siblings Joan Pfaffmann, Sandra Antilla, Mary Ann Grivna, William (Mary) Herrick; and children Rhonda Bratt, Scott (Kelly) Herrick, Robert (Cheryl) Herrick, Becky (Andy) Goodall, Kristen (James Stuyvesant) Herrick, Ann Herrick, Christopher (Rebecca) Cole and Jennifer (Walter) Albrecht. He also leaves behind several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Memorial Services will take place Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 11:00 AM at Saint John Lutheran Church in Hillman with Pastor Jason Mandley officiating. Military Honors will follow. The family will receive friends at the church from 10:00 AM until time of service.

The family has entrusted funeral arrangements with Oak Grove Funeral Home & Cremation Center of Manistee.
