Richard James Weisgerber, 63, of Naches WA passed away peacefully and reunited with his Mom, Regina on February 4, 2018 at Cottage in the Meadow in Yakima after a brief and courageous battle with cancer.  He fought his hardest until the very end. Dad was born December 13, 1954 in Edmonds WA to Frank and Regina Weisgerber.  He grew up in Seattle and later joined the Army and Air Force.  While stationed in Germany, he met the love of his life, Barbara.  They got married in a castle in Hanau, Germany on February 6, 1976.  In 1980, they had their first daughter Marcie, and in 1983, their second daughter, Monica, was born.  Rick worked for the United States Postal Service for 33 years. He started as a letter carrier in Bremerton, WA then moved up to a Supervisor in Silverdale, WA and then became the Postmaster in Tonasket, WA.  He retired as the Postmaster of Wapato, WA in 2012.  

Dad enjoyed bicycling, traveling with our mom in the motorhome, watching the Seahawks on TV and Bella, his four-legged companion who was always by his side but over all else he was a family man. His pride and joy were his three grandsons Tyler, Brandon and Mason.  He was very proud of his boys and had a special bond with each of them. He never missed Tyler or Brandon’s football, basketball, and baseball games or school assemblies because if they had something going on, he was going to be there! Mason always expected a foot massage, high five, and a game of peek-a-boo if Grandpa was around. He never declined an opportunity to spend quality time with his grandsons and almost daily received a phone call asking if they could spend time with him. It wasn’t a family vacation unless Grandpa was there too. There was nothing he wouldn’t do with them and they loved spending time with their Grandpa. We always knew we were so lucky to have such an amazing Dad, but the bond that he had with our children was priceless. 
The amount of love that he had for our Mom was unmeasurable. After 42 years of marriage, the unconditional love and devotion was never depleted. Together they were the definition of true love.  
Dad was an all-around, ultimate handyman and knew how to fix anything.  Always helping other people and his selflessness was not a conscious choice of his, it was just who he was every day. His generosity was experienced by all that were close to him. 
He is survived by his wife, Barbara, two daughters, Marcie and Monica, two son-in-laws, Andrew and Adam, and three grandchildren, Tyler, Brandon, and Mason. In addition, his Father, Frank (Leo) Weisgerber , three brothers, Lawrence (Barbara) Weisgerber, Frank (Patti) Weisgerber, and Mark (Marquerite) Weisgerber and two sisters, Linda Hamilton and Teri (Mike) Bonfadini. He was preceded in death by his Mother, Regina Weisgerber.
