Richard A. Waterman
Richard Alan Waterman of Rapid City, passed away with his wife by his side on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020 after a battle with cancer. Rick was born on Aug. 5, 1945 in Detroit.
He married Sharon Kay Daniels on March 5, 1966. Rick and Sharon moved from Detroit to Rapid City in 1974, where they found property that he couldn't believe a person could own, because of its amazing beauty. Rick retired from the postal service after 30 years of service.
A lover of all music, he enjoyed his time playing the piano and guitar. He also enjoyed reading, tending his plants, any project requiring a shovel, a good conversation or debate (on anything), playing with and taking his dog Willie for walks and spending time with his family and friends.
He is survived by his loving wife, Sharon; his children, Roberta (Tom) Markham, Joe (Sara) Waterman; his sister, Judith (Ernie) Roy; his grandchildren, Mle, Paige, Zander and Tommy; and his dear friends, Dean and Matt.
Rick was preceded in death by his father, mother, brother andtwo sisters.
There will be a celebration of life for Rick, which will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers or donations, please plant a tree in his honor.
Do what's right and do what's good. Be kind and help others. The world can always use one more kind person.
