Richard A. Rinschen, 69 of Ashland, NE, entered into rest on September 22, 2014 at his home in Ashland. He was born June 5, 1945 in Omaha, NE to Arthur and Anna (Conn) Rinschen. He graduated from Omaha Central High School in 1963. On December 1, 1979, Richard was married to Laura Wemhoff in Omaha. He worked as a computer analyst for Union Pacific Railroad and later retired from the State of Nebraska. After retirement he continued working for Lee Sapp Ford.
Richard loved restoring old cars and some of his fondest memories were spent cruising with Laura in his ’56 Chevy. The only thing that he loved more than his car was his family. He always enjoyed taking his kids to car shows. He was a member of the American Legion #129, Nebraska Rod and Custom Association, and the Good Guys.
He is survived by wife of 34 years, Laura; children, Renee (Scott) Sorensen of San Antonio, TX, Brad (Lisha) Rinschen of Mahomet, IL, Karla (Devin) Ivy of Rapid City, SD; sister, Judi (Jerry) Radek of Idaho.
