Richard L. Hattery, 68 of Warsaw, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 26, 2019 at 9:08 p.m. in the home of a friend.
Born in Marshall County on June 9, 1950, he was the son of Donald and Dorothy (Freece) Hattery. He spent most of his life in the Plymouth and Warsaw areas and was employed by Premier Concepts, Warsaw. He also spent several years serving in the National Guard.
Richard had a strong work ethic and rarely missed a day or took vacation time. When he relaxed, he enjoyed watching TV shows like Gunsmoke, M.A.S.H., and In the Heat of the Night. He was a straight-shooter who told you what he thought and, in spite of his tough exterior, had a true love for animals.
On December 26, 1993, Richard was married to Edith “Marie” Davis. She survives in Warsaw. Also surviving are four children: Jason Hattery of Plymouth, James (Gayle) Hattery of Plymouth, Buffy (Shawn) Speirs of Plymouth and Donnie (Heather) Hattery of Lapaz; father, Donald Hattery; three siblings, Ross Hattery of Albuquerque, NM, Rhoda Hattery of Plymouth and Rita Pepple of Plymouth; 10 grandchildren; four step-children; and seven step-grandchildren. He was preceded in passing by his mother and an infant son.
Richard's life will be privately remembered and celebrated at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to Titus Funeral Home.
