Richard R. Reckner, 84, passed away peacefully at home on October 2, 2018. Born on August 31, 1934 to the late Harold and Virginia (Yetter) Reckner. He was the beloved husband of Shirley E. (O'Brien) for 62 years; loving father of Richard D. Reckner, Thomas (Diana) Reckner, Steven (Glenda) Reckner, Lynn Lawson, and Kathy (Mike) Liskai; grandfather of Rob and Alayna Reckner, Jake Reckner and Nicole Samara, Sara and Sean Burton, Kayleigh Lawson, Adam, Matthew and Emily Liskai; great-grandfather of Zain Samara; brother of the late Joann Ebding.
He was an active parishioner of St. Ann Groesbeck for 60 years where he coached youth football for over 10 years. Professionally, he was a journeyman tool and die maker working for such firms as Bendix Corp., Access Corp. and Tekmar.
Remembered for his laughter and smiles. Never a dull moment with his many stories, jokes and constant football/baseball on the TV. He was a coach to many and a friend to all. With a Pepsi in one hand and a cigarette in the other, he would give you the shirt off his back.
