Richard Lee Ehrenfelt 67, of The Villages, FL. passed away on Friday, May 22, 2020.

Richard was born on May 19, 1953, in San Fernando, CA. The son of Milton B. Ehrenfelt Jr. and Betty Lou (Jackson) Ehrenfelt. Richard’s family moved from California to Kalona, IA when Richard was young, where he went onto graduate in 1972 from Mid-Prairie Community Schools in Wellman, IA.

Richard was a master craftsman and jack-of-all-trades, an inventor, creator, entrepreneur, handy-man, chef, golf-enthusiast, hunter, and fisherman. Through his entrepreneurial vision, Richard made custom electric golf cart doors for numerous people in his community, which lead to a successful small business.

But most important to Richard, and his most proud achievement was the role he played as an amazing Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, family member, and friend.
Richard’s natural warm, charisma, and sense of humor made people gravitate toward him, and he will be deeply missed by many.

He is survived by his wife Kathy of The Villages, FL, his children, Mitchell Ehrenfelt of Richland, IA, Lindsey (Jeremy) Kane of Grimes, IA and Aundrea Bayne of South FL, his Grandchildren, Ava and Aubrey Kane of Grimes, IA, Taylor, Rachel and Sloane Bayne of South Florida, Sisters Diane Cunningham of Kirksville, MO, and Karen (Tom) Waters of Kalona, IA.

Richard was preceded in death by his parents, Milton and Betty Ehrenfelt and other members of his extended family.

According to his wishes, cremation has been entrusted to the care of Baldwin Brothers, A Funeral and Cremation Society of Wildwood, Florida.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date.

    Shocked and saddened to learn of Richard's passing. We worked together for many years here in Panama City. Richard "Dick", as we knew him, was an amazing friend and co-worker. So many great times together. He was always there to help anyone who needed it. RIP old friend.

    Richard was a true gentleman and always went out of his way to help someone...sometimes those people never knew what he was doing for them. He continues to do those things even now. He was a great man and a true friend and he will be truly missed.

    I only knew Richard for a few years but I could tell he had a heart bigger than life itself. I will miss him very much.

    Richard was truly a renaissance man with many talents. But even more than that, he was a great man, and an even greater friend. I sincerely enjoyed every moment I spent with my friend Richard. I will miss him immensely and I’m certain I will think of him often.
