Obituary:
Richard Carl Naumann 1946-2020
Resident of Redwood Valley, Ca
Richard Naumann fell asleep in death with his loving wife by his side.
Richard was well known in the community for his many outstanding skills. He was, as his son says, “A jack of all trades master of them all”, every venture of repair or maintenance work he chose, he accomplished with professional skill. He was a teacher, automotive diagnostic technician, fine carpenter, bricklayer, architect, engineer, just to name a few.
He will be missed dearly.
Richard is survived by wife Nancy, siblings Arlene Byers, Dorothy Vassar and David Naumann, children Theresa Dessaso (Michael), Warren Naumann (Ruth), Erika Pierce (Patrick), grandchildren Mark and Julia Dessaso, and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded by his father Rudolph Naumann, mother Martha Naumann, brother Carl Naumann and sister Janet Riggs.
The Naumann family would like to give special thanks to Hospice of Ukiah for their knowledge, support and compassion during this time.

Father, Dad, Daddy and Grandpa. Those are just a few of the names I and my children were lucky enough to call you. I see this photo and remember all of the amazing memories growing up and learning from you. From water Skiing, camping up at Lake Pillsbury, houseboating on Shasta and exploring northern California in your Trans-Am and that green 1964 Dodge pickup that everyone in Ukiah recognized. You taught me to be a strong, independent woman/mom who was not afraid to take on the toughest challenges with pride and determination. You taught your children how to be our own boss and entrepreneurial. We all learned so much from you. You were an example of a great and loving husband who cared deeply for his wife and took so much pride in your home. I miss the nearly daily calls we had for so many years and although those calls diminished over the years, I still hear your laugh in my soul and heart. I was lucky enough to spend the most time with you and I will miss you so much. Rest in peace Dad. I Love you and will miss you terribly.
