Obituary

Richard Alfred, of Mitchell, passed away Saturday April 3, 2021 at his home. His memorial service will be held at 11:00 am, Thursday April 8th, at Bridgman Funeral Home in Scottsbluff with Pastor Angie Jones officiating. Interment will follow at Fairview Cemetery in Scottsbluff. Visitation will be one hour prior to service time. The family respectfully requests that in lieu of any flowers, memorials in Rich’s honor be made in care of the family to be designated at a later time. Online condolences may be made by viewing Rich’s memorial page at www.bridgmanfuneralhome.com.
Richard was born on November 5th, 1941 to Russell & Hilda (Gotschall) Alfred. He grew up in Scottsbluff, grew up with 7 brother and 1 sister, and graduated from Scottsbluff High School in 1959. After graduation, he served in the United States Marine Corps. He met and fell in love with Patricia Austin and were married in 1961. From this loving union came Sandra and Steven.
In his early years, Richard loved working on cars and racing stock cars. He worked at Magnolia Homes as a plumbing installer and general construction worker. He took his love of automobiles to K-Mart and worked as the service manager in the auto service department until that department was phased out. He took his plumbing knowledge with him and worked at Home Depot in the Plumbing Department and retired in 2012.
In his retired years, he loved to work in his yard, growing flowers and mowing, and he really enjoyed spending time with all his grand-children. He cared for Patricia through her extended battle with cancer. He had a very extended list of friends, and seemed to know everyone, and was loved by all.
Richard is survived by his brothers Arvid, Mike, David, Ralph; sister Helen; daughter Sandra (Marlin) Duncan; son Steven (Linda) Alfred; grandchildren Kendele (Cory) Voigt, Kayla (Robert) Carrizales and Stephanie Alfred, and Shelby Duncan; great-grandchildren Aspyn, Haylee, Caiden, Madison, Emmerson & Jackson.
Richard was preceded in death by his loving wife Patricia Alfred, his parents Russell and Hilda Alfred and brothers Duane Alfred, John Alfred and Steven Alfred.

Growing up with cousins in Scottsbluff leave many memories......they lived right next door when we were very young & then we enjoyed visiting them in the country almost every Saturday morning with our dad & every Christmas Eve. ... our dad's were brothers & worked together also. I always think of Richard (& Pat) when we go down Avenue E in Scottsbluff & pass the church where they were married..I remember Richard's toothless smile on that day.....we cannot be with my other cousins as they honor him today at the service but you are all in my heart. .......til we meet again.......God Bless.........June (Alfred) White

Sincere condolences to Richard's family. Richard is my cousin but I hadn't seen or talked to him for a very long time. He made contact with me and we renewed our relationship which I appreciate very much. He was very kind to his wife in her last years which impressed me very much. Peace to Richard and to all the family.
