Richard “Rich” Reece, age 69, of Hampshire and formerly of Bensenville, Wood Dale, Illinois and Glasgow, Kentucky, at rest on Friday, September 18, 2020. Beloved partner of Cathy Herrick for thirteen years. Dear nephew of Patsy (the late Roy), Shirley (the late Harvey) and Max (Deb). Fond uncle to several nieces and nephews. Survived by his beloved “pet” Flatfoot. Preceded in death by parents Herb and Peggy, sister Mariann and Aunt Carol (Marshall) Bailey.
Richard was a self-taught mold maker and Harley-Davidson enthusiast. He loved classic music and rarely missed an opportunity to cheer on his beloved Cubs. Many thanks to Lisa, the home health provider who became a great friend, and Artis Memory Care of Bartlett, for all their exceptional care and support. For the past two years, Richard’s role as Santa brought joy and smiles to Artis staff, residents and visitors.
A celebration of his life will be 11:00AM Saturday, October 10th at the Glasgow Municipal Cemetery in Glasgow, Kentucky.
Local arrangements are entrusted to A.F. Crow & Son Funeral Home.
