Richard was born May 14, 1956 in Zumbrota, Minnesota to the parents of Lloyd and Dorothy (Wildman) Strassburg. He lived most of his life in Burtrum. Richard worked in a variety of jobs before finding what he enjoyed most, driving truck. He really was a jack of all trades and the hardest working man that we knew. In 1977, he married the love of his life, Debbie Rosenow. Together they had four children, Emmet, Shawn, Kimberly, and Kaila. He loved all of his grandkids and there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for them. Richard enjoyed spending time with all of his family, camping, mowing lawn, and sitting in his chair at the dining room table drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, and eating Reese’s peanut butter cups. Richard passed away unexpectedly doing what he loved, driving truck.
Survivors include his wife, Debbie of Burtrum; children, Emmet (Jess) of Sauk Rapids, Shawn (Heather) of Long Prairie, and Kaila (Kodeiy) of Cushing; grandchildren, Justin, Shelby, Rosalie, Colin, Alyssa, Chantel, Hailey, Tianna, Kieara, Natalya, Daisie Jean, Tim, and Taylin; parents, Lloyd and Dorothy; siblings, Ray (Margie), Randy (Bonita), Deb (Barney), and Ron.
