Richard Lee Gonterman passed away at home on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024. He was born on June 30, 1950, in Evansville, Ind. He was a son to Robert and Katherine Gonterman. He was preceded in death by both parents, sister Evelynn Rue, daughters Rhonda McFarlane and Toni Hickman and grandson Matthew Boatman.

Richard is survived by his wife Anne Gonterman, married since June 15,1987; brother Robert Gonterman, his children Kimberly Gilligan, Jerry Gonterman, Richard·Hollinshead, Lisa Smithey, Michael Minton, Lorretta Minton; his grandchildren Ricky (Krystle) Smithey, Crystal (Rex) Norris, Kendra Smithey, Shane Smithey, Tristen Minton, Hannah Minton, Molly Minton, Kaitlyn Fisher, Tiffany, Fisher, Brayden Langston, Steven (Angel) Freix. 

Richard had 19 great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, cousins, and so many more family members.

Richard Gonterman was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather. If at any given point his family needed help, he would help them out by living there with him and his wife. He was a very loving, caring man, with all his stories and time spending in the garage hanging out on a wonderful or difficult day, he would brighten the room with his sayings. Do not forget my doggy bag, or hi, wish I was, or what you got for me, where’s my surprise at. We will miss him so much and he will forever be in our hearts and minds. We will make sure we will keep his sayings going, and remember the memories we had with Richard.

There will not be any services for Richard Gonterman, per his wishes. He will be cremated. There will be a celebration of life in summertime, not sure when but will let family and friends know when the time comes.
