OBITUARY

Richard Hollie Kercheville

December 24, 1941February 18, 2021

Richard Hollie Kercheville, a sixth generation Texan and a lifetime Austin area resident, passed from this life on February 18, 2021 at the age of 79. He is survived by his wife, Genny, their daughter, Hollie Worley and her husband, Chad, and their son, Brent Kercheville, and his wife, Heather. He also leaves behind his five grandchildren, Cole, Tyler, and Luke Worley and Brooke and Natalie Kercheville, as well as his sister, Kay Hollenbeck, and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Dick graduated from S. F. Austin High School, and Texas Christian University. He worked in the insurance business and in land development. He also owned Hill Country Feed and Supply in Leander. In addition, he ran a cattle operation on the family’s Sunset Ranch. He and Genny attended St. Mary, Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Lago Vista. They also loved to travel, and they spent many summers seeing the USA in their motorhome.

The participation in football and baseball in his younger years and golf in his later years gave Dick a lot of pleasure. Recently he enjoyed watching those sports on television. Hunting and managing the deer population at the ranch as well as working with the cattle, was also a labor of love for him. Dick and Genny’s move to the ranch in 1996 was an exciting new beginning for them as they finally got to live full time at their favorite place on earth. Being a part of nature brought joy to them both, and they loved sharing their place with family and friends.

Dick’s internment will be at the family’s cemetery on the Sunset Ranch.

We send our heartfelt condolences to Genny & all her dear family at this sad time. Dick was a wonderful man & such a great father & grandfather. We will never forget his tours around the ranch, checking out all the cattle, he was so proud of. I remember he even named some of his new bulls after his Irish Cousins ! What an honor ! He had such a great smile & sense of humour.

We really enjoyed catching up with him again in June 2013 at the World Wide Rodgers Reunion & having him come to visit at our home. We opened a huge bottle of Champagne to mark the occasion & we had so much fun chatting with our Texan & Canadian Cousins. Wonderful Memories that we will treasure for ever !!

Thoughts & prayers are with you all at this sad time.

Michele & David Moody & Family. Lisburn, NORTHERN IRELAND

So sorry to hear the very sad news.
What fantastic memories I had with Dick on Sunset Ranch. The jeep tour around the ranch was like a trip to Mars after coming from Ireland and with Dick at the wheel is was “sure” exciting. Rounding up the cattle with Dick and taking them then to market was also a real highlight for me. Everybody should be a cowboy once in their life time and I really appreciated that opportunity and time Genny and Dick gave me there.
It was wonderful to meet Genny and Dick again in (2013) at the Rodgers reunion in Ireland and catch up. He finally made it over to the Emerald Isle where the people talk as he said “much to fast” what a great humor he had.
My deepest heartfelt condolences go to you Genny, Hollie, Brent and all my Texan cousins at this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and Prayers.
Take care Simon. Herrenberg, Germany

I have waited a few days to collect my thoughts and know what to say. I have known Dick since I was 9, Kay was my first and best friend my whole life and Bubba was "our" big brother. I know we drove him crazy, but it didn't seem to bother him. We worshipped him, especially his football prowess. I remember Kay and I driving around in her Covair listening to the radio when TCU beat Texas. Fast forward 20 years and once again we get reacquainted with Dick and Genny when Kay came to visit their home on Antler Lane. Bill and I had been looking for land to build a home and we fell in love wth Antler Lane. The Antler Lane years were the happiest in our lives and we loved being across the street from Dick and Genny. One memorble event was when Dick had to babysit 3 -year-old Lauren when I had Will, because Bill was at a Tech football game in Lubbock (that is another story). Dick was so laid back and kind, not to mention very funny. Bill and I will miss him horribly.

Genny and Dick would often come to the Cook Pow Wow and Reunion. They have always been a part of our tribe. As kids, Dick, Kaye and Genny, Janan, Georgeanne, and others would play chase in the dark at our home on Manor Road well into the night while our parents played bridge. Fun times. Dick was easy to be around, listened to stories, at times gave advice, and always had a ready smile. It was apparent that Genny was the love of his life. Love you Genny and all your tribe as much as any human can.
