Richard Hilgendorf was referred to by his nickname "Dick". His sense of humor and quick wit made everyone who met him instantly comfortable. He thoroughly enjoyed many things, but biking, watching OSU Football, golfing, and talking politics, and attending grandchildren's games were his favorite things to do. He attended games at Anderson, Milford & West Clermont High School for many sports and the grandchildren loved his support. He also coached baseball in the 1970's and 1980's and created many memories which he cherished.

Dick Hilgendorf was married to his wife Mary Ann for 61 years. He attended Catholic church every Sunday in Cincinnati at St. Rose and St. Veronica. He loved his wife's cooking and always looked forward to family gatherings. He knew he had a wonderful and full life and he will be deeply missed.
