Richard Benesh

Dick is survived by his parents, Richard and Marcy Benesh; brother, Steve (Jane) Benesh; sisters: Ann (Mike) Herman and Mary (George) Tschida; nephews: Jason Oussey and Joey Tschida; nieces: Jenny VanHal (Matt) and Analiese Tschida; great-nephew, Kavan VanHal; and many wonderful friends.

Dick was born March 24, 1950, in Austin, to Richard and Marcy Benesh. He graduated from Austin High School in 1968. For the last 20 years he has been working for the Target Corporation. He enjoyed golfing, watching golf, genealogy, Gopher sports, watching his nephews and nieces’ sporting events and being with family and friends. Dick was loved by all that crossed his path. He was funny, spontaneous and always there if you needed him. He always walked a path that was true to himself. We’ll all miss his humor and sarcasm.
