January 18, 1934 – November 17, 2020
Richard F. “Dick” Conner, age 86, of North St. Paul, formerly Inver Grove Heights. Richard went home to the Lord on November 17th.
Survived by his wife Frances, the love of his life for 63 years. Also survived by children, Vickie (Bill) Doherty, Kathy (Jeff Oberman) and Jim; grandchildren, Billy and Rick (Lauren) Doherty, Kate (Brian) Murrell, Jacob, and Claire Oberman, Ava and Jackson Conner, LyTasha and Taylor Quick; three great grandchildren; sister, Gayle Ann (Roger) Mikkelsen; and many nieces and nephews who were all so fond of their “Uncle Dick”.
Preceded in death by parents, Gale and Eleanor, and sister, Joyce Petersen.
Richard proudly served in the US Navy. He retired after 36 years with Northern States Power and thoroughly enjoyed over three decades of retirement. Richard lived life to the fullest and always had an open heart and welcoming arms to anyone who entered his life. He never missed a party, relished getting together with friends and family, and always looked for a reason to celebrate at Mancini's. He will be remembered for his love of family, integrity, acceptance of others, and of course, his signature greeting “How do you dooo”.
