Richard Neumann was born March 13, 1936 as the youngest child of Carl and Elizabeth Neumann. He was born in Dos Palos and passed away on May 31, 2020, in Bakersfield.

Richard met his lovely wife, Laverne, in Wasco. They were married on Feb. 26, 1966, and she preceded him in death on Msy 1, 2011.

They had 3 children: Lonnie Neumann of Taft, Sandy McAvinue of Tehachapi, and John Neumann and wife Erin of Taft.

They had five grandchildren: Billy Atchley (deceased), David Atchley of Bakersfield, Travis Neumann of Taft, Nathaniel Neumann of Taft and Johnathon Hopkins of Taft.

Richard loved his family and family get-togethers. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, and was a great fan of watching Nascar racing.

Richard retired from AES, Inc. and moved to Tehachapi. He had faith and trusted in God. He was deeply loved and will be missed by family, friends, and all who got to know him.

We thank everyone for their love and support.
