Obituary

In Loving Memory of Richard Wedlick
December 21, 1937 – June 9, 2024
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Richard Wedlick, who left
us on June 9th, 2024, after a valiant battle with esophageal cancer. Born on
December 21st, 1937, in a quaint house in Dearborn, Michigan, Richard’s
life was a testament to the power of positivity, love, and joy.
Richard’s journey took him from his hometown to the Navy, where he
served his country with honor for four years. It was during his time,
stationed in San Diego, that he met the love of his life, Sharon Bordelon.
Their love story began amidst the California surf scene and sunshine, a
stark contrast to the cold, gloomy Michigan weather he had known. Their
relationship blossomed into a beautiful marriage in 1961 that stood the test
of time.
Richard is survived by his devoted wife Sharon Wedlick, who stood by his
side through every trial and triumph. Together, they raised four wonderful
children: Richelle (Ricki) Wedlick, Cheryl (Cherie) Doemer husband
(Patrick Doemer), Marion Renda husband (Joseph Renda), and Edward
Wedlick and wife (Laurie Wedlick). His legacy also includes six cherished
grandchildren: Edward Doemer, Allyson Wedlick, Anne Marie Doemer,
Leah Doemer, Mark Doemer, and Zenora Renda (husband Rodrigo Santos
Renda) and many nieces, nephews, along with friends in ‘high’ places.
Richard was more than just a loving husband, father, and grandfather; he
was a beacon of positivity. His unique attitude toward life, characterized by
a child-like wonder and an unwavering “live for the moment” perspective,
left an indelible mark on everyone he met. He spread love and positive
vibes wherever he went, touching countless lives with his infectious smile
and boundless optimism.
As we remember Richard, we celebrate a life well-lived, a spirit undaunted
by adversity, and a heart full of love. He will be profoundly missed, but his legacy of love and his power of positive thinking will continue to inspire us
all.
Rest in peace, Richard Wedlick. May your spirit be surrounded in white
light. Your memory will forever be a blessing.

    My dad ad had a unique ability to see through the veils of deception and understood the world in ways that few others could. His cautionary tales about various conspiracy theories, which I once thought were crazy, have proven to be more accurate than I ever imagined. He relentlessly shared his wisdom (even if you didn't want to hear it) with his unique perspective on life. Often warning that the government and powerful groups weren't what they seemed, sounding quite a bit crazy at the time. But as things proceeded to unfold, a lot of what he preached turned out to be true. I've yet to see the "Lizard people" though.
    As we remember him today, we can't help but smile at the truly one-of-a-kind man that he was. His childlike spirit, combined with his unique perspective on life, created a presence that was both amusing and enlightening. He taught us to never lose our sense of wonder and to always seek the truth, no matter how unconventional it might seem. He lived each moment with the spontaneity of a child, embracing the present fully. His perspective was a blend of wonder and unusual insights into life's secret mysteries. His journey was marked by love, resilience, unwavering positivity, and an optimism that shone brightly, touching all our hearts. Rest in Peace dad, you will be incredibly missed.
