We are very sad to announce the passing of Richard Koder. He made his transition of life to our Lord on the morning of October 22, 2019 in Loveland, CO due to a stroke.

He was born on May 12, 1938, a son of the late Clarence and Cecelia Koder. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Mert Koder, her sons, Brian, Steven and Darrell. His daughters, Cindy and Christina. His brother Dale Koder, sisters Judy Schwind and Susan Farnham as well as many nieces and nephews. Richard’s grandchildren include Haven, Zen, Joshua, Ashley, ChauVanna, Stephen, Jason, Christy, Nora, Molly, Dallas and Nickie. His great grandchildren Emily, Hailey, Chauntelle, Braden, Ashley, Alex, Trystyn, Mason and Brayden.

On June 28, 1985, Richard married Mert and they lived a committed life to one another for 34 years. They were two peas in a pod and loved each other very much. They did everything together and took care of each other. They joked a lot, teased each other, enjoyed new adventures, raised and loved their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren so very much and had a committed faith in our Lord.

Born and raised in Toledo, OH, Richard moved to Denver, CO in the mid 60s to join the Air Force where he was an airplane mechanic. After the Air Force, Richard worked as a mechanic on heavy equipment for many years andlater owned a Cornwell Tool Truck selling tools rather than the hard labor of wrenching. He had a strong work ethic and believed in doing things to the best of his ability. Fun fact about Richard is, he helped build the Eisenhour Tunnel in 1974 working on the heavy equipment that created it. Honk in the tunnel when you pass through in his spirit.

He raised his daughters, Cindy and Christina on a 5 acre farm in Platteville with their mother, Lou Koder. It was a wholesome life of farming, gardening, horses, chickens, cows, an occasional duck and lots of rabbits. He even had a worm farm at one point. He was a charismatic dad teaching his daughters how to hunt, fish, work on cars, how to ride horses and dirt bikes and took them camping in Old Blue (his 1972 Chevy truck). Richard also loved to hunt elk, horseback ride and camp with his long-time buddies and his youngest daughter, Christina.He was a humble man who would do anything for anyone to help them out. He had a heart of gold and a playful personality. He loved to joke with his grandkids, was great at telling stories with so much enthusiasm, he loved to dance with his own style of the jitter bug and always had a sparkle in his eyes.

He enjoyed his trips to Florida and Tennessee the last few years to visit his brother, Dale, and sisters Judy and Susan. Thank you Dale for your hospitality in making this happen year after year.

Richard had a deep relationship with Jesus and church. He found so much peace in the word of God and it brought light into his life. We trust he is at peace and in the warmth of Gods grace and with those who went before him. He will be dearly missed. We love you!
