Obituary of Richard O'Brien

Morenci - Richard K. O'Brien, age 65 of Morenci, passed away Thursday, May 19, 2022, at Charles and Virginia Hickman ProMedica Hospital in Adrian.  He was born in Wauseon on August 15, 1956, to the late Alvin and Barbara (Gault) O’Brien.  On September 12, 1981, he married Charlene Barden, and she survives. 

Richard was a man of many likes and talents.  A true outdoorsman, he loved to hunt and fish, as well as tend to his garden.  He could build anything for anyone and loved to help people.  Richard was a down to earth county boy at heart and farmed for many years.  He loved to travel – exploring and trying new things, as well as vacationing in Florida.  Perhaps his most favorite thing was his family – especially his grandchildren.

Surviving besides his wife are children, Brian (Renae) O’Brien and Brandy (James) Benfante; grandchildren, Madelyn, Steven, Nicholas, Jacqulyne, Kaleigh, Drake, Emilee, Brooklyn, Savannah, Danica, and Brilee; great-grandson, Dante; and sisters, Roxann Skelton, Jackie VonSeggern, Leisa Kern, and Julie Powell.  He was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother, William O’Brien.

The family will receive visitors at the Eagle-Marry Funeral Home - Morenci Chapel, on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM, at which time a procession to Lime Creek East Cemetery will take place for graveside services.  Pastor Darren Lemmon will officiate.

Online condolences to the family may be offered at www.eaglemarryfuneralhome.com.  Monetary contributions may be directed to the family for future designation.  The Eagle-Marry Funeral Home – Morenci Chapel is entrusted with arrangements.
