Obituary

HIGH, Richard B.
Delton

Richard Burton High, age 90 passed away Saturday, August 24, 2019 at Brookdale Senior Living in Battle Creek. Richard was born March 28, 1929 in Kalamazoo, the son of Harvey and Irma (Fosdick) High. On January 22, 1949, Richard married the love of his life Barbara Hopkins at the First Presbyterian Church in Battle Creek. Richard worked as a manager for Hill Piston Service for over forty-two years. He lived on Long Lake for fifty-three years and was an accomplished water skier and slalom skier. In his free time, Richard enjoyed staying active by being outdoors, fishing, camping, boating, woodworking, and playing Euchre. A true car enthusiast, Richard restored numerous cars throughout his life. In their later years, Richard and Barbara were active community members where they wintered in Brownsville, Texas. Most important to Richard was his family, who will always remember his joke telling, laughter and wonderful sense of humor. Surviving are his children: Cindy (John) Koerner, Blaine (Paula) High, John (Connie) High; grandchildren, Gabe, Gwyn, Sara, Allison, Chad, Shannon, Brandon, Derek, Connor, Amy and Harvey; fourteen great grandchildren; brothers: Burget High, Jim High, and Michael High; sister Judy Wright; and several nieces and nephews. Richard was preceded in death by his wife Barbara, brother Harvey “Tom” High, and sister Phyllis McAllaster. Richards’s family will receive friends, Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 11:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. at the Williams-Gores Funeral Home, Delton, where a memorial service will be conducted at 12:00 P.M., Rev. Patricia Weatherwax, officiating. Private interment will take place in Battle Creek Memorial Park at a later date.
