Richard Charles Hurrle

August 10, 1943June 13, 2020

Papa - Richard Hurrle, left this life on June 13, 2020.

Richard was born in Portland Oregon on August 10, 1943 to the parents of Charles Hurrle and Marie Fischer. After graduating from high school, he spent 3 years in the Army. On November 21, 1992 he married the love of his life Kathy and made their first home in Portland, eventually moving to McMinnville.

Richard was known by his family as Papa, this was name that fit him well as he loved spending time with his grandchildren while drinking cowboy coffee and pulling pranks on them. Richard was gifted in many of the trade skills which he used to provide for his family, and he was always willing to lend a hand and share what he could. He loved fishing, boating, crabbing, listening to classic country music, reading western novels, and he was always ready with a new joke to share.

Richard is survived by his wife Kathy, his four children Rich, Russell, Richard; stepdaughter Deanne and her husband Craig; three sisters Janet, Karen and Joyce; brother Craig; 17 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.

There are no words to describe the many treasures that Papa deposited in the family, his love, and hard work showed in all that he did. The heartbreak the entire family feels at his departing this life is immeasurable.

Funeral arrangements will be held at 2:00 pm, July 12, 2020 at 2020 SW Birch St. McMinnville, Oregon 97128.

Cousin Dick was a one of a kind sort of guy. To know him was to love him. Cathy, his wonderful bride of 28 years was his saving grace, as he, like I said was one of a kind. He sucked me in on so many of his stories because there was no better story teller in the world.
Dick, you are loved by many and will be missed by many.
Don’t cheat at cards with Jesus and don’t try to get God to fall for one of your stories.
I love you, dearly, my friend. Tell Mom and the rest of the family hi and I look forward to our great reunion.
