Richard Milo Egr
April 3, 1929 – September 16. 2022
Born in Bruno, NE, Richard was a dedicated husband and father who proudly serviced his country in the U.S. Navy, playing on the U.S. Navy baseball team while serving. Richard imparted his knowledge of baseball with many while coaching local baseball teams over the years. He was preceded in death by his parents, Tillie and Louis, and is now reunited with his brothers, Donald and Dennis.
He is survived by his wife (who will celebrate their 69th wedding anniversary on the day of his interment), Florence (Miller) Egr; his children: David Egr (Judy), Beth Feldhaus (Dr. Steve), and Lori Miller (Dr. Bill); twelve grandchildren: Erika (Darin) Kieckhafer, Kirsti (Matt) Puetz, Zac Egr, Bryan (Claire) Feldhaus, Kristan (Joe) Pilakowski, Kimberly (Rene) McNulty, Jeffrey (Jordan) Feldhaus, TJ Feldhaus (Dana Brooker), Kevin Feldhaus (Emily Kellow), Tim (Allie) Miller, Liz (Aaron) Mitchell, and Chris Miller; twelve great-grandchildren: Logan, Camden, Spencer Kieckhafer, Ben Puetz, Owen and Annie Feldhaus, Sam, Gracie and Liam Pilakowski, Morgan McNulty, Jemma Feldhaus, and Olivia Miller.
His greatest passions in life were sharing his love of golf, baseball, and everything Huskers with his family, and cheering on the Kansas City Royals with his brother Donald. He was an avid fisherman who was often found with his brother Dennis by his side. In his spare time, you could find him making golf clubs for many, and searching for unique golf balls to add to his collection of over 20, 000!
