Obituary of Richard Flege

He was born on November 26, 1943 to the late Clifford and Elizabeth (Barta) Flege.

After retiring, he loved to take things apart to scrap, helping his son-in-law, Ron, with his projects, growing a vegetable garden and canning.
He is survived by his loving wife of 14 years, Karen; his precious daughter Bernadette (Ron) Carlson; Step-children Rhonda (Jim) Campbell and Will Ebner; grandchildren Ty and Ian Carlson, Colin Ebner, Maddie Campbell; Siblings Judith Partridge, Clifford (Bobbie) Flege, Tom (Julieanne) Flege, Mark Flege, and Mary (Larry) Noel, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
