Richard Kridner, age 81 and a resident of Warsaw, passed away quietly on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 in Kosciusko Community Hospital at 9:58 a.m.

Born on August 16, 1938 in Pontiac, Illinois, Richard was the son of Louis and Virginia (Fairchild) Kridner. He was the last living child of four Kridner siblings.

Richard was a fun person. He could be ornery but was easy to chat with and enjoyed visiting with members of the Kosciusko County Senior Services Center. He was formerly a member of the Moose Lodge in Peru and was a Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy fan.

Richard was also a hard worker. He was self-employed as an upholsterer for many years, owning and operating Kridner’s Upholstery. He learned upholstery as a young man in Pontiac and worked for some time at the Pontiac Chair Factory. Later, his work could be seen in the Kansas City Royals offices and stadium.

On April 29, 1977, Richard was married to Mary Beth “Betsy” Pettis. Betsy survives in Warsaw as do daughters: Beth Ann Piper of Illinois, Kris Baum of Illinois, Vickie Hall of Wyoming and Thania Colgrove of Warsaw; sons, Paul Kridner of Colorado, Michael Kridner of Kentucky and Phillip Colgrove of Illinois. Also surviving are several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His son, Rick Kridner; brothers, Louis and Robert Kridner; sister, Jane McCutcheon and his parents all preceded him in passing.

A graveside service will be held at Culver Masonic Cemetery, 1200 South Main Street, Culver on Friday, September 20th at 1 p.m. Titus Funeral Home, 2000 East Sheridan Street, Warsaw is assisting the family.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts to the Animal Welfare League of Kosciusko County, PO Box 1906
