Richard Alan Grossarth

August 18, 1945 ~ February 5, 2024 (age 78) 78 Years Old


Richard (Rich) Grossarth, a man of immense love, unwavering dedication, and unparalleled bravery, passed away peacefully surrounded by his beloved family on February 5, 2024. He leaves behind a legacy of love, compassion, and cherished memories that will forever be etched in the hearts of those who knew him.
Rich was a devoted husband to his beloved wife Charlotte, a loving father to his children Chris and Craig, poppy to his loving granddaughter Cassie, and survived by his brother, friend and business partner of many years, Barry.  His family was his pride and joy, and his love for them knew no bounds.  He found immense joy in spending time with them, creating lasting memories that will be cherished for generations to come.  Rich loved taking Cassie to lunch, watching her many stage performances, and being so proud.
A true dog lover, Rich shared a special bond with the family's golden retrievers throughout the years, especially with their current companion, Ralphie.  His affection for the loyal companions mirrored the depth of his love for his family.
Rich's passion for old cars was evident from a young age, starting at just fifteen when he began rebuilding them into street rods. This passion not only fueled his love for automobiles but also developed meaningful relationships with fellow car enthusiasts.  These friendships blossomed into a tight-knit community bonded by their shared love for vintage cars.
Above all, Rich was a selfless individual who always prioritized the well-being of his loved ones.  He tirelessly supported his family, offering his guidance, love, and assistance when they needed it.  In his final days, he displayed extraordinary courage and immense love, ensuring each member of his family felt cherished and supported.  His decision to embrace his journey with grace and dignity serves as a testament to his remarkable strength of character.  Rich's legacy will live on through the countless lives he touched with his kindness, generosity, and boundless love.  His presence will be deeply missed, but his spirit will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know him.  
In honoring Rich's memory, let us celebrate his life, his love, and the indelible mark he left on this world.  Though he may no longer be with us in body, his love will remain a guiding light in our lives forevermore.  Rest in peace, dear Rich, knowing that you were deeply loved and will be profoundly missed.
