Richard Lawrence Pelletieri Jr., 67, of Waterford, passed away Thursday, Jan. 18, 2024, surrounded by people that loved him.

Richard, known to everyone as Rick, was born to Richard Sr. and Patricia Pelletieri on Nov. 2, 1956, in Milwaukee. He was a proud Air Force Veteran, a talented fisherman and the biggest Packer fan around. Rick was a jokester, and had an infectious laugh. He liked to spend time with his friends at Dizzy’s, going “Up North” to Montello to hop on a friend’s boat for a fishing getaway, playing with his grandchildren by giving them a good “jump scare”, or just sitting back and watching a good game of Wisconsin sports.

Rick is survived by his four children, Teresa, Tina, Joe (Jenny) and Kari (Scott); his three sisters, Karen (Pete), Kathy (Steve), and Diane (Jeff); and by his many grandchildren and great grandchildren, who will cherish his memory dearly.

Instead of a traditional funeral, a celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please crack open something cold during the upcoming Super Bowl in honor of Rick.

Schuette-Daniels Funeral Home is serving the family. Well-wishers may visit
