Born: January 9, 1940 Death: August 2, 2021

You good lookin’ SOB, you weren’t ever supposed to die, but on August 2, 2021 you left the world with a smile on your face. On January 9, 1940, Richard Lewis DeBar was born in Heidelberg, PA as the oldest son of Louis and Ruth DeBar; followed by his beloved brother William, Robert, and Donald. He graduated from Connelly Trade School, served in the U.S. Navy, and was a life-long member of the Local #6 Painters Union. Richard and “his bride” Amanda would have celebrated 50 years of wedded bliss on January 17, 2022. Richard is survived by his wife, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and yet mostly by the great stories of his life. A military service will be held Thursday, August 12, 2021 at 2:30pm at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies. Friends and family are invited to attend. The family requests no flowers or arrangements for the service. Donations in Rich's memory to the Wounded Warrior Project are suggested.  Arrangements by Ball Funeral Chapel, Inc.
