Richard was born on February 10, 1945 to Melvin and Ethel (Erickson) Holman in Morris, Minnesota. He graduated from Morris High School and later graduated from St. Cloud State University with a degree in Education. He honorably served his country in the United States Army, during the Vietnam War, serving in Logistics while stationed in Germany. Richard was united in marriage to Carol Bauer on July 26, 1967 at Assumption Catholic Church in Morris. They would eventually make their home in St. Cloud. Richard was a member of the St. Cloud V.F.W. Post #76, American Legion, and the Eagles Aerie #622.

Richard was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He cherished spending time with his children and grandchildren. Richard loved to travel, especially to Costa Rica, and touring the United States with his wife, Carol. Richard was also an avid baseball and basketball coach, coaching all ages of young men from middle school through high school Legion Baseball. Most notably, he was the coach of the St. Cloud Chutes American Legion Baseball Team for many years. He loved the “Game”.  Richard also enjoyed tinkering and working around his house, whether he was raising pigeons, tending to his immaculate flower and vegetable gardens or simply hanging out in his garage listening to the radio.

Richard is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Carol; sons, Derek (April), of Big Lake and Michael (Laura), of Escazu, Costa Rica; grandchildren, Halle, Mya, Bruin, Lucca and Emma; brother, Kermit (Audrey); sister-in-law, Shirley Holman; and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Byron.

A special thank you to the staff of the St. Cloud Hospital Home Health Care for their loving and compassionate care of Richard.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Salvation Army.

I want to extend to you my deepest sympathy for your great loss. Death can leave you feeling empty. Please know that this is not a permanent condition. The Bible holds out a hope to all of us that soon sickness, pain and the last enemy, death, will be no more as brought out at Revelation 21:4. We can also look to the assured expectation of John 5:28, 29 that says there is going to be a resurrection of those we have lost to death to life here on earth. I do hope you are able to find solace in these words.
