Richard "Rich" James Thoe, 49, of Green Bay, passed away on Tuesday, February 7, 2017. He was born on May 8, 1967 to Gene and Judy (Mostek) Thoe. Rich attended Ashwaubenon High School and graduated in 1985. He joined the family business and worked at Standard Heating and Cooling for over 20 years. Rich then worked for Howard-Suamico School District. Rich looked forward to golf season every year with his buddies, bonfires in the backyard, Family Camp, and his afternoon dates with Judge Judy. He was a proud homeowner and made lasting friendships with his tenants. Rich loved his family and was especially fond of his nieces and nephews. He was always good for his unique laugh, endless teasing, and had nicknames for most of his family and friends. Rich's response to most questions was, "Pretty good and you?"
Rich will be sadly missed by his parents, Gene and Judy Thoe; siblings, Cory (Terry) Zuleger, Steve (fiancé, Wendy Swenson) Thoe, Brian Thoe, Jim (Michelle) Thoe, and Tracy (Mark) Hibbard; nieces and nephews, Sam Zuleger, Amy (Chris) Petrie, Nolan Zuleger, Kerri Hibbard, Sarah Hibbard, Lydia Thoe, Jackson Thoe, and Gavin Thoe; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Rich is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Milo and Cora Thoe, maternal grandparents, Frank and Della Mostek, his Godfather, Richard Laundrie, and his cousin, George Mostek.
Family and friends may visit Friday, February 10, 2017 from 3:00 p.m. until the time of memory sharing and Prayer Service at 7:00 p.m. at Lyndahl Funeral Home, 1350 Lombardi Ave. Entombment will be in Allouez Chapel Mausoleum.
