Richard Alan Emig
July 1944 – November 2018
Richard Alan Emig of Turlock, CA (a direct descendant of Emigsville, Pennsylvania), was born on July 6, 1944 and passed away peacefully on November 28, 2018 surrounded by his adoring children Melissa Heaslett, Matt Emig, and Ryan Emig. He is also survived by his grandchildren Taylor Heaslett and Connor Heaslett.
Richard was a retired cattle broker who loved gambling. His sense of humor helped comfort his family through the last difficult week when he suffered a rare stroke. This is where we’d like to encourage everyone to quit smoking!
He was recently reunited with most of his siblings just prior to his illness and treasured that!
Not only was he hilarious, overly generous, and kind — he had charisma! Voted “Biggest Flirt” Class of ‘62 Hughson High School, he was quite a charmer! His personality was contagious! He joked and smiled to the end. His memory will be treasured and live on in our hearts forever.
To honor his wishes, funeral services are private and by invitation only.
Although we only spent a short time at The Hospice House in Hughson, CA, we would like to thank them for the respect and dignity that he so deserved and would encourage any form of donations in his name to Hospice House of Hughson.
