BELLEVUE — Richard Eugene Channing, 77, of Bellevue, died Thursday at his home.

He was born May 26, 1941 in Willard, the son of the late Frank and LuEllen (Bauer) Channing.

He was a hardworking, dedicated owner-operator for 50 years, traveling 6.8 million safe miles. Richard’s love for his family always came first. He was a jack-of-all-trades: a builder, fixer, gardener, fisherman, friend, and servant of God.

Richard is survived by his wife, Diane (Kessler) Channing, whom he married July 26, 1991 in Upper Sandusky; special grand-daughter, Alana Fox; sons; daughters; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; a brother; a sister; an aunt and uncle.

Richard is preceded in death by a son; brother; aunts; uncles, and many special friends.

Friends may call from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Mount Caramel United Methodist Church, 4997 County Road 183 Clyde, where a memorial service will be held at 11 a.m.

Memorial donations may be made to Richard’s family for funeral expenses.

Foos and Foos Funeral Service is handling arrangements.
