Richard J. “Rick” Hirsch, formerly of Detroit, MI, passed away May 25, 2013, in Crossville. He was 87.
Rick was predeceased by his beloved wife, Therese, in 2004.
He will be sadly missed by his five children, Kathleen (Michael) Coyle, Robert (Nancy) Hirsch, Nancy (Robert) Mollencopf, Terry (Cathleen) Hirsch and Michael (Janie) Hirsch; his five beloved grandchildren, Sarah (Kevin) Vanden Berge, Anne Hirsch, Nicole Mollencopf, Matthew Hirsch and Jonathon Hirsch; and many nieces and nephews and their children. Rick’s brother, Ted, and sister, Betty, also predeceased him.
Rick will be remembered as being a man of strong principles and having a huge heart.
Even after suffering some physical setbacks a few years ago, he continued to describe himself as “lucky” and he maintained that positive attitude to the very end of his life.
He was a World War II veteran, having served in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific on the USS Houston.
Rick worked in the auto industry for 40 plus years, initially for General Motors and later for Volkswagen of America. After his retirement from Volkswagen, Rick was a quality assurance consultant with Purchase Parts Group for several years.
After his retirement, he and Therese relocated from Michigan to Fairfield Glade, Tenn, where they enjoyed making many new friends and of course, playing golf.
