January 20, 1933 — July 10, 2022

Richard Hlidek, 89, of Palisade MN, passed away peacefully at his home on the river, July 10, 2022.

Born on January 20, 1933, to Fred and Emma (Draplik) Hlidek, in Omaha Nebraska, he married Darlene Gerke on August 29, 1959. His Psychology degree brought much enjoyment and satisfaction working with children, and he had a special knack for helping troubled teens.

Antique collecting and woodworking provided a lifetime of hobbies. Richard had a love for the Mississippi River. He enjoyed camping, and canoeing. Above all else, he loved spending time with his family and friends. As a very social person, he found a friend in everyone he met. He will be missed by all who knew him.
