OTHER INFORMATION: -For online condolences, please visit


You can be a rich person but you are the poorest in the land if you don't have your beloved mother to clasp your hand.

Her smile is gone forever, her hands will bake no more, still we have such sweet memories of the one we loved so much.

These memories are in our keeping so we'll never be apart.

God has her in His kingdom, but we have her in our hearts.

So you, who have a mother, cherish her with care, for you will never know the heartache until she is no longer there.

Richard L. Peche, 73, died Saturday, November 21, 2015 at Wellbrooke of Westfield, Westfield IN, after a courageous yearlong battle with cancer. He was born May 29, 1942, to Edwin and Margaret (Johnson) Peche in Marshfield, WI. While his father was off at war in the South Pacific, he and his mother lived with his grandparents on their farms, which sparked his lifelong interest in farming.

During high school, he worked on a mink ranch and also for his uncle’s construction business. After graduation, Richard joined the Air Force and was stationed in Texas and Germany. He travelled throughout Europe during the 3 years he was there and always talked of those days fondly. It was in Germany that he bought his first VW Beetle, and brought it home with him to the States. He continued to drive Volkswagens for decades.
  After being discharged from the Air Force, Richard worked at the Chrysler Motors plant in Belvidere, IL. He married Karen Ulczycki of Rib Lake in 1967, and in 1970 they moved back to the Medford area and bought a farm in Goodrich. He attended agri-business classes thru NCTI, and continued farming most of his life. After he quit farming, he moved to the Withee area and drove for the Amish community.
  Richard is survived by his daughter Julaine (Rick) Santiago of Westfield IN, and one brother, William, of Hartland, WI. He is also survived by 2 grandsons, Justin and Joshua Santiago. He was preceded in death by his parents.
