Obituary Image


Richard (Dick) Herdegen took his final flight on April 26, 2020 when he went home to be with his Lord.

He lived life to its fullest. He was a lifelong entrepreneur - always coming up with new business ideas in a wide variety of fields (bike and trophy shop, water well digging, charter fishing, gambling manager, hospice home, and most recently appliance repair/sales - just to name a few). He grew up working hard on his family’s ranch in Chinook, MT. After high school, he joined the Navy where he gained a love of flying. He went on to earn his pilot’s license; flying was a lifelong hobby, and at times part of his work, including his work as a crop-duster.

His faith took deep root in his later years. He was an active volunteer and faithful attender at Faith Life Church in Sarasota and a volunteer for the Wounded Warrior Project. Dick loved to laugh and enjoyed every adventure that came his way, and he had many.

He is survived by his loving family and friends. Memorials may be directed to The Wounded Warrior Project. Interment at Sarasota National Cemetery.
