Richard E. Osburn – May 13, 2014

Richard E. Osburn

Richard-OsburnRichard E. Osburn, 94, passed away Tuesday, May 13, 2014, at Banner Lassen Medical Center with many family members by his side.

Born in Missouri to Claude and Millicent (Richards) Osburn on March 1, 1920, Richard moved with his family to California at the age of three. He married Mary Agnes Day on January 1, 1940. As did most of his generation he served his country in WWII. He was a member of the United States Army. Richard spent the war in the “far east” sailing to India then on through India and Burma and finally into China attached to Merrill’s Marauders. After the end of the war he returned home to resume his life working for many years in the furniture manufacturing business, retiring from Steel Case in 1982. Upon retirement, he and Agnes moved to Susanville and enjoyed many good years of retirement, traveling, and family.

Agnes preceded him in death in December of 2004. Richard is survived by his son Michael Osburn and daughter Barbara Smith (Rick), both of Susanville, as well as five grandchildren, Tom Smith (Kelly), Crystal Harkness (Bill), TJ Smith (Leann), Garrett Osburn, and Jeremy Osburn (Holly), four great-grandchildren Colby Harkness (Libby), Orrin Harkness, Destry Harkness, and Dillon Smith, and a great-great granddaughter Lyla Harkness.

Richard was a good man who worked hard, was honest, loyal, and always faithful. He was known for his ability to repair, refurbish, or build most anything. Richard lived a long and full life and we are the better for having been a part of it.

There will be a graveside service at Diamond Crest Cemetery on Saturday, June 7 at 10:00 a.m. The family is asking in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Fisher House Foundation or the Disabled American Veterans’ (DAV) Service Trust.

Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
