GOSHEN — Richard Joseph Putz, 89, of Goshen and formerly of Mishawaka, passed away Thursday at the Courtyard Health Care in Goshen, with his sons at his bedside.

Richard was born in South Bend, on June 30, 1923 to the late Joseph John and Bernice (Moskwinski) Putz.

On Oct. 19, 1946 Richard married the former Dorothy Adams in Mishawaka. Richard and Dorothy were married for 58 years. Dorothy passed away on May 29, 2004. Richard was a resident of Mishawaka for 60 years until he moved to Goshen.

Two sons, Richard L. (Marcia) Putz, Goshen, and James E. (Nanette) Putz, Elkhart survive Richard. Richard was a grandfather to six grandchildren, Keegan Putz, Mishawaka, Clinton Putz, Osceola, Levon Putz, Grove City, Ohio, Jami Putz, Columbus, Ohio, Sara (Andrew) Jewett, Elkhart, and Rebecca Putz, Goshen; and great-grandfather to seven great grandchildren, Collin, Alaina Putz, Lucy, Jack Joseph, Rosilynn, Olive Jewett and Landon Putz. Richard is also survived by a brother, Robert Putz, Crumstown.

A grandson, Joshua Putz, preceded Richard in death.

Richard served his country in the Army Air Corps “Flying Tigers.” He was an avid amateur radio operator even after the service. He retired as a Master Inspector at Torrington Company in South Bend, after 28 years of service. He was a former member of the Emmanuel Baptist Church.

There will be no visitation, a private family graveside service will be held at a later date.

Bubb Funeral Chapel assisted the family with the arrangements.
