Richard (Dick) R. Hiller Sr.


Richard (Dick) R. Hiller, Sr, 83, passed away on May 8, 2024. Dick was born on June 26, 1940, to Roy and Virginia Hiller, and was the oldest of their five sons. He was a 1958 graduate of North Central High School, attended Eastern Washington University, and in 1959, he was a volunteer draftee in the U.S. Army. In 1961 Dick married Karen Rosenkranz and they welcomed two children, Laurie and Richard Jr. (Rick). Dick worked in Data Processing-Systems Development for over 35 years, in Spokane, WA, Anchorage, AK, and Portland, OR, retiring in 2001, and he and Karen returned to Spokane. Dick enjoyed playing sports, especially Senior Slow Pitch Softball, where his teammates often said he “excelled at pitching on the mound.” Dick also volunteered as a painter for over ten years on the PET Project, now called the NW Trinity Project.

Dick is survived by his wife of 63 years, Karen; daughter Laurie Roffler (Steve); son Rick (Marjean Bell); grandchildren Tyler and Tim Roffler, Allison Sargent (Cameron); great grandsons Kellen, Beau and Parker; and four brothers, Gary, Clifford, Clyde and Steve.

We will honor Dick at a memorial service on Thursday, May 30th at 2:00pm located at Sunset Chapel in Fairmount Memorial Park, at 5200 W. Wellesley, Spokane, WA.
