Obituary for Richard H. Rausch II

Richard H. Rausch II, age 69, of New Philadelphia, surrounded by his loving family, went to be with his Father in Heaven on Wednesday, November 8, 2017.

Born May 11, 1948, in Dover, he was the son of the late Richard H. and Iva Faye Meese Rausch. Richard graduated from Dover High School and served honorably with the U.S Army during the Vietnam War. He was with the Army Security Agency and was stationed in Vietnam and Ethiopia. Following his discharge Richard was employed by the Gibbons & Graybill Co., Cleveland, and later worked for Union Camp Corp., Dover, from which he retired.

He attended the Dover Alliance Church, enjoyed collecting antiques and was a member of the Tri-County Post Card Club. He also enjoyed swimming at the Y.M.C.A., and was a former member of the Dover Jaycees.

Richard was a devoted husband and a loving father and grandfather. He was grateful for his many friends whose company he was so very fond of. Richard always wore a smile and often could be heard whistling a cheery tune.

His family includes his wife, Winnie Rowland Rausch, whom he married on August 10, 1975; his daughters, Traci Rausch of New Philadelphia, Jessi (Troy) Shumaker of Dover, and Darcy Neff of Beach City; his grandchildren, Paeton Rausch, Rylie and Jade Shumaker, and Misty and Joseph Neff; his six great-grandchildren; his sister, Cindy Milarcik; his sister-in-law, Karen (Bob) Uda; his brother-in-law, Rick Rowland; his many nieces and nephews, including Laura Milarcik, with whom he was very close; and his cat, Dixie May.

In addition to his parents, Richard was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Ted Milarcik.

Family and friends are invited to call on Tuesday, November 14, 4 – 7 p.m., in the Toland-Herzig Funeral Home & Crematory, Dover. A funeral service will be held Wednesday, November 15, at 11 a.m., in the funeral home, with Pastor Richard G. Rose officiating. Burial will be in Dover Burial Park where military rites will be conducted. Following the committal, there will be a luncheon in the Dover Alliance Church.
