He was the proud Grandfather of five grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Richard, most affectionally known as “Dick,” was born October 23, 1932 at the Teubert family home in Fairfield, Montana. He was the middle son of Gladys and Carl Teubert. They had seven children: Fern, 1927, Robert 1929, William 1931, Richard 1932, Doris 1935, Helen 1939 and James 1949. Dick was 6 years old when they moved to a 160-acre farm in a rural area of Fairfield. His Father raised wheat, barley and hay as well as cows, horses, sheep, pigs and chickens. They learned valuable work ethics as they all worked together.
While attending Montana State, hoping to complete his college education, he was drafted into the Army and assigned to the 503rd regiment. Following basic training he attended Jump school to become a Paratrooper, he had 14 jumps when the Korean war ended, he never had to leave Stateside!
After the war he moved to Southern CA. and found work with his Uncle Ed as a heavy equipment operator. He loved his job and joined the union shortly thereafter, retiring at the age of 62.
Dick was active in sports throughout his life, both as a player and as a fan. During his school years he was a serious competitor in basketball, baseball and football. He coached little league baseball until he retired and moved from the LA area to Sun City Roseville. He was an active member of Senior softball up until the last two years of his life. He was an avid skier both on the water and in the snow. He also loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing every chance he could get. Displays of his many trophies and medals can be found throughout his home.
Dick was a fun loving, warm, outgoing person who honored his faith loved his family and valued his friends. He and Pat served as ordinance workers in the Sacramento, CA. Temple for many years.
Due to the mandated quarantine, the graveside service will be private, and a Celebration of Life will be planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in his honor to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints, Humanitarian Aid Fund.
