RICHARD E. HILZER

Richard E. Hilzer, age 83 entered into rest at his home in Auburn, WA on Thursday, August 29, 2019. He was born August 11, 1936 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska and was the middle child and only boy to the late Henry and Irene Hilzer. He grew up in Sunnyside, WA where he went to school and upon graduation he entered the Army. Upon his discharge he went to work for Boeing, where he retired after 38 years.

Upon retirement, Rich and Cathy built a home in Mossyrock, WA, overlooking the lake. Family and friends enjoyed many memorable gatherings and celebrations there over the years. Rich and Cathy moved to Auburn this past year to be closer to family and health care facilities.

He loved to hunt and fish, and was an excellent cook. He loved a bargain and liked to shop, sometimes in excess. If one was good, then three had to be better. He was a member of the Renton Fish and Game Club, and lifetime member of the NRA and WA State Arms Collectors.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Irene, and his older sister Patricia Rambo.

He is survived by his wife Cathy and his sister Sharon Minter. His children: Cari Hilzer, Kelly (Jeff) Sinclair, Cory (Linda) Hilzer, and Mike (Sue) Peterson. Grandfather to Justin Sandberg, Nicole Hilzer, Rylee Sinclair, Cory Hilzer Jr. and Lydia Peterson. Great Grandfather to Shayleen Hilzer, Hunter Sandberg and Dylan Gregory.

Remembrances may be paid to the American Stroke Association or Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

His celebration of life (private) is to be held in Mossyrock, WA where he will forever rest in peace in a place he loved. We will always miss and love him, but know he is in a better place.
