R. Dick Mitsch, 77

R. Dick Mitsch was born on Dec. 6, 1941 to Nellie and Adolph Mitsch. He entered into heaven on Jan. 29 at Kalispell Regional Health Center.

Dick spent most of his adult life in Columbia Falls where he owned and operated several businesses including the Texaco service station, Muffler Alley, Quick Lube, mini storage, Lazy Day Trailer Court and the RV park. He was well known and respected by the community. Dick was a Past Master of the Columbia Falls Masonic Lodge #89 AF & AM and a Shriner. Dick is well known for his community service with his snowplow during the winter months. He was a top-notch auto mechanic and enjoyed working on vehicles even in his retirement. He especially liked going to Arizona in the winter and kept an old Jeep in the garage there to work on. Dick successfully restored an old John Deere tractor which was his pride and joy that he shared with friends and family. He was an avid reader and his favorite winter time reading spot was in his shop next to a wood-burning stove. Dick was quick to respond with his heavy equipment and mechanical expertise to anyone who needed it.
