Richard Phillip Schafrath

Richard Phillip Schafrath, 84, of Mansfield, passed on Sunday, August 15, 2021.

The son of Norman and Mary (Star) Schafrath, Richard was born on March 21, 1937. Richard's life of 84 years encompassed a lot and he truly lived a story of accomplishment. A short obit could never do his life justice.

Richard leaves behind his wife of thirteen years, Judith Rush; his children, Orie M. Rush, Michael (Rachel) Woolson, Jeff (Sue) Denim, Renee (John) Raper, Ty (Jeni) Schafrath, Heidi (David) Hoffman, Bruin (Margaret) Schafrath, Gerrit (Sritlana) Schafrath and Isaac (Katie) Schafrath; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; his brothers and sisters; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother.

The family has celebrated Richard with private services. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make memorial contributions in honor of Richard to Richland Pregnancy Services, 1560 W. 4th St., Mansfield, OH 44906. The Diamond Street Home of Wappner Funeral Directors is honored to serve the Schafrath family.
