Richard James Reesen was born on October 14, 1966, in Marshall, Minnesota, to parents Waldo and Joann (Dirckx) Reesen. He was baptized at St. Eloi Catholic Church in Ghent before his family moved to the Arlington/Green Isle area where he attended school. Richard was confirmed in his youth at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Arlington where he graduated from the Arlington High School with the class of 1985. Richard went on to work various jobs including at Michael Foods in Gaylord and then the Bongards Creamery from 1993 – 2007.

Richard needed a change in 2011, so he moved to Marshall and began work at Schwan’s and also spent a lot of time volunteering at the Avera Thrift Store. He was a good and loyal friend to many and enjoyed sharing a beverage with those close to him. He loved spending time outdoors, mowing the lawn, hiking, fishing, and going to the lakes.
