Richard “Rick” Eisel passed on to his heavenly home on March 15, 2023, after a 3-year battle with cancer. His wife was by his side. Richard was married to the love of his life, Carol, for more than 48 years. They have two children, Jason Eisel and Alison Clancy. Richard was a life-long member of St. Elizabeth/Holy Trinity Church where he served on several committees throughout the years. He is a 1968 graduate of St. Elizabeth Elementary School and a 1972 graduate of Evergreen High School.
Richard worked at Sautter’s Food Center, Waterville OH, for more than 50 years, retiring as meat department manager in January 2020. Richard was known as the man who could fix anything, both at work but especially among family and friends. “If it was broken, call Rick.”
His true passion, however, was his family. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren, whether it was creating the Club House in the backyard for the grandchildren or sitting them on his motorcycle for a photo op. He was also happy to attend many of their sporting events, sometimes more than one a day.
Richard is survived by his wife Carol (Waters), son Jason (Lara), daughter Alison Clancy (Tim) and seven grandchildren, Brogan, Wyatt, Callen and Nolan Eisel, and Colin, Megan and Tyler Clancy. Also surviving are his siblings Mary Hassen (John), Michael (Diane), Thomas (Sue), Margaret Mizer (Steve), Raymond (JoAnn), Theresa Simon, Patrick (Karen), Greg (Jackie) and John (Kathy), as well as his sister-in-law Shirley Springer (David), and numerous nieces and nephews.
Richard was preceded in death by his parents, Richard and Rosemary (Wagner) Eisel, parents-in-law Marshall and Miriam (Schiffman) Waters, brother-in-law Jeff Simon and nephew-in-law Dan Moeller.
