Delmar “Del” Richter

Delmar C Richter, 86, of Hayes Center died peacefully on July 11, 2022, in the same farmhouse where he was born to Harold and Hazel (Clough) Richter on February 28, 1936.
Del was confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church of Palisade in 1979 and baptized along with four great granddaughters on August 12, 2006. He sang in the choir and served in many roles as an elder.
He graduated from Hayes Center High School in 1953, where he played football, basketball and ran track. After high school he married Gwen Curtis and they welcomed two children, Jodi (Stinson) and Randy. After their divorce, Del lovingly referenced his second marriage as a “packaged deal” – the deal included his wife Joyce (Busking), two stepsons Brian and Mark Vogler, and a dog named Alice.
He spent most of his life raising cattle, corn and wheat on his family farm near Hayes Center. He also served in the Nebraska National Guard. For hometown happenings, Del could be counted on to volunteer, support, and participate in almost any activity. Some of his favorites included town baseball, pitching horseshoes, listening to blue grass music, playing his harmonica (in jam sessions or for birthdays), and gathering for a hot cup of Hayes County Coop coffee.
Del is survived by his wife of 43 years Joyce, daughter Jodi, son Randy (Lana), stepsons Brian (Janelle) and Mark (Cherish), brother Buddy (Janice), sister Bonnie Rader (Con), along with 11 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents Harold and Hazel Richter, and stepfather Bill Miller.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Del can be made to McCook Community Hospital Home Health, Orphan Grain Train, or the charity of your choice.
