Richard A. Spale

April 24, 1930 — August 9, 2018

Richard Spale, 88, formerly of Schuyler passed away Thursday, August 9, at Columbus Care and Rehab Center in Columbus.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be directed towards the Schuyler Public Library Foundation.

Richard Adolph Spale was born on April 24, 1930 in Schuyler to Adolph and Marie (Parolek) Spale. He graduated from Schuyler High School in 1948 and married Dorothy Buresh at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church in Schuyler on May 26, 1955.

Richard was a man of few words, and a big heart. He loved all types of animals especially his dogs, and his love of farming and tractors could be seen in his smile when he talked about them. Farming was his life, but in his “free-time” he could found napping or listening to his favorite polka music.

He is survived by his wife, of 63 years, Dorothy of Columbus; one son Randal (Martha) Spale of Lenexa, KS; four daughters: Janine (Guy) Pelsor of Lincoln, Denise (Michael) Szatko of Lincoln, Valerie Spale of Lincoln, Michele (Steve) Buroker of Bennington; 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandson.

Richard is preceded in death by his parents, son James Spale in 2011, and sister Rita Sindelar.
