Obituary for Richard E. "Dick" Riggs

Print
Richard "Dick" Riggs, 86, of Bloomington passed away Saturday, January 12, 2019.
He was born January 24, 1932 in Honeycreek, Indiana to Clayton Riggs and Bertha Fletcher Riggs. Dick graduated from Indiana University with a BA in Business. During his sophomore year, he met beautiful young freshman, Marguerite "Maggie" Hyfield. She became the love of his life and they were married in 1956. They celebrated 62 wonderful years of marriage.
Dick worked for RCA in Indianapolis directly after college. He came back to Bloomington in 1960 and went to work for LesCo selling transistor and electrical components for televisions and radios. Years later, he worked for Stackpole Carbon as a Sales Engineer, covering 11 states. Dick and Maggie lived and raised their two children in Bloomington.
Dick was an avid fisherman and loved boating. most family vacations were on lakes from Michigan to Florida. Many times he would get home from work, quickly change his clothes, head out to the garage to take the boat to Lake Monroe, Lake Lemon, or Yellowwood. He won several bass tournaments over the years and he had several stories about the "one that got away".
He also loved working with wood, spending many hours making heirlooms for his family. The family would cherish these items for generations including a cradle to be used for his first great-granddaughter in June 2019.
Dick had a great group of friends. Back in the day, they met at Ladyman's for breakfast and they currently meet at Steak and Shake. He loved going to breakfast with the men and sharing stories and lies. They shared lots of laughter over a span of 40 years.
He is survived by his devoted wife, Maggie (Hyfield) Riggs, and loving children, daughter, Rachael Riggs Dennis and grandson, Taylor Dennis (Colleen) of St. Petersburg, FL; and son, Jeffrey Riggs (Susan) and granddaughter, Rebecca Riggs of Bloomfield, IN.
The family will receive friends 11am-12:30pm Saturday, January 19, 2019 at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard, 3000 E. Third St. in Bloomington.
A memorial service will be 12:30pm Saturday at The Funeral Chapel with Pastor Ron Sutherlin officiating.
