On Wednesday, November 30th 2022, Richard Glen Miner an amazing father, grandfather, husband, business leader and friend died at the age of 94 at his "Creekside" home in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
Richard was born February 2nd, 1928 in Harvey, North Dakota to Glen Edward Miner and Marcia Cussons Miner. He was preceded in death by his only sibling Robert B. Miner, WWII Germany in 1945 and one daughter Renee Marie Miner in 1966. Richard is survived by his three children, Mark Miner, Paul Miner, Michelle Stafford (Douglas), 5 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and his former wife Joanne Ulvick Miner.
Richard's life was full of great accomplishments, happiness and passion for living each chapter to the very fullest. He was most proud of his family and the memories of raising his kids in Grand Forks, North Dakota while enjoying endless summer weekends at the family cabin on Union Lake, MN, a place he loved for more than 60 years. Professionally, Richard retired as President, Ecolab Pest Control (formerly Lystads in Grand Forks, ND) a company he lead and contributed to the success it enjoys yet today. Richard was active in the Methodist Church, the Elks, Masons and Shriners. In retirement Richard traveled the world with his companion Marge Berger. When they weren't on a cruise ship or navigating the Great Wall they could be found at his ocean front condo on Maui, Hawaii hosting pu pu parties for their many friends. Sadly Margie preceded Richard in death in March 2022. In between Lake and Maui seasons Richard loved the Fall at his hunting cabin near Cooperstown, ND and spending time with his many hunting buddies.
Richard served as an example to so many, to the very end he never stopped expressing how happy he was, what a lucky man he was and how proud he was of his family, he will be deeply missed.
