Obituary

Richard Eugene Heim, 76, of Easton, Kan, died Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born Jan. 2, 1944, in Leavenworth, the son of Harold and Martha (Bromell) Heim.

He graduated from Immaculata High School in 1962.

On Dec. 27, 1967, Richard married the love of his life, Linda Adamson in Lawrence, Kan. She survives at the home after 52 years of marriage. He is also survived by two brothers, Jerry (Sandy) of Leavenworth and H.B. (Sandra) of McLouth; five sons, Mark (Tracy), Steve (Jennifer), Kevin (Rachel), Eric (Kristin) and Alex (Marly) Heim; 19 grandchildren, Steven (Cori) Beck, Kayla (Gabe) Stewart, Andrew, Cody, Morgan, Lindsey, Jacob, Jack, Katherine, Tucker, Madelyn, Caleb, Luke, Haley, Claire, Abraham, Evan, Dylan and Wyatt Heim; one great grandchild on the way; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Richard had a great love of land and he was a lifelong farmer. He retired from dairy farming in 2011 and was then able to farm with his five sons up until his death.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Richard was an active member of St. Joseph of the Valley Catholic Church, where he served on the church council. He was an avid KU Jayhawks fan, and he enjoyed trapshooting and hunting in his younger days. Richards favorite pastime was watching each of his grandchildren play sports. He took pride in Lake Stella Maris meaning “Star of the Sea” that he and his brother owned and operated together. Richard was known for his kindness and humility and will be greatly missed.

Visitation beginning with the rosary will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2020, at St. Joseph of The Valley Church. Masks will be required inside the church. Mass of Christian burial will be private followed by a public burial at 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 20, 2020, at Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Memorials are suggested to St. Joseph of The Valley - St. Lawrence Parish or KU Cancer Center.
