Richard Musser, 79, of Baraboo, passed away on Saturday, April 6, 2019 just 10 days after his beloved wife, Sharon of 48 years, passed. Born in Chicago, Illinois on Jan. 8, 1940 Richard a south side, windy city flatlander known as the “common man”, was anything but common. God first, country second, family third. Richard was a veteran of the United States Army serving his country in Frankfort, Germany during the cold war from 1963 to 1965. He was a member of the VFW Greenwood Memorial Post 987. Known by many from his dedicated years working at the car wash, Richard had a larger than life character and personality that could never go unnoticed. He enjoyed driving his 1960 Buick LeSabre and was a longtime member of the Dells Area Cruisers. He will be greatly missed by family, coffee buddies at DQ and Viking, and his many friends who knew him for his “doing it his way” attitude. Survivors include his three children, Renee Musser, Rich Musser and Rochelle (Jason) Oelke; 11 grandchildren; and other relatives and friends. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 304 East St., Baraboo, with Fr. Jay Poster officiating. Visitation will be at the church on Wednesday from 9 am until time of Mass. Interment will be held in St. Joseph Cemetery with military honors provided by the VFW Greenwood Memorial Post 987. A luncheon and celebration of Richard’s and Sharon’s life will take place at Thunderbird Lanes, 1117 8th St., Baraboo, from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Baldwin Funeral Services is assisting the family with arrangements.
As Richard would say, “Smile and confuse people”.
