Richard David Wold passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at home on April 17. He was 62.
After graduating from Maine South High School and attending North Park College, Richard worked for Willow Creek Church as director of drama for many years. He then embarked upon a long and fulfilling career in market research. He retired due to illness after 20+ years with The NPD Group. He was hilarious, kind and generous.
Richard was the best friend of 42 years to Virginia Meredith and adored baby brother of Carol (Ken) Schmidt, Linda (Jack) Herzog and the late Barbara Holtz.
He was also the loving uncle of John (Kristi) Schmidt, Robyn Herzog, Paul (Robin) Herzog and the late Steven Herzog; the great-uncle of Sydney, Sebrina and Sheridan Schmidt as well as Nora, Vivian, and Jacob Herzog. In addition, he was the son of the late Clarence and Violet Wold, and the dear in-law of Marilyn Vanover and Gary Smith.
A celebration of life will be held this summer.
