Richard L. (Dick) Lupardus was born February 28, 1942, to Doris and Carroll Lupardus in Des Moines, IA. Left this life on February 1, 2024.

Survived by loving wife, Kathy, of 59 years; children: Cindy Stovie (Mark), Lisa Beister (Jeff), Dan Lupardus (Michelle) Mike Lupardus; grandchildren: Brittany, Mark Jr, Dylan, Emma, Cody, Jake, Samantha, and Hunter; 7 great-grandchildren; brother, Pat Green (Nancy); and sister-in-law, Karen Lupardus.

Preceded in death by mother, father, and brother, Tom Lupardus.

He was Vice President of Southwest Bank for many years until it was sold.

After retirement he went to work at Guns Unlimited, guns being the 2nd love of his life.

He and the boys loved going hunting together, which always seemed to coincide with mom’s birthday.

He loved his dog, Bandit, and faithfully walked him twice daily, no matter what the weather, eventually meeting almost every neighbor and knew them by name. That man loved to talk!

A major part of his life became his 2004 Chevy SSR, named MINION, because of its bright yellow color. He and Cindy attended car shows throughout NE and IA almost every weekend in the summer. The house is full of trophies he won, many 1st place.

He was a man who loved his family and a friend to many. He will be missed by all.

    Dick was one of a kind. I always had great respect for him. He always ended our conversations with, Don’t be a stranger. You’re welcomed here anytime. 💕 We always looked forward to seeing him & Cindy at the car shows we attended. It will not be the same going to them in the future without him there. Our deepest condolences go out to each & everyone of his family & friends. He will definitely be missed. This isn’t goodbye. It is until next time. It will be a blessed reunion in Heaven someday. Go rest high on that mountain. Your work here on earth is done Dick. 🙏🏻❤️ Hugs all around. 💕
