Richard L. "Rich" Romine

April 23, 1947 - July 20, 2020


Richard L. Rich Romine, 73, of Swayzee, died peacefully at his home with his family by his side on July 20, 2020. He was born on April 23, 1947, in Gas City, Indiana, to the late William and M. Louise (Miller) Romine. Rich was a graduate of Mississinewa High School, Class of 1965, and later went on to serve in the US Army from 1967-1970, he served in Vietnam. On December 24, 1982, he married Brenda D. (Mayberry) Romine and she survives.

Rich was a Purdue and Cubs fan. He enjoyed photography, gardening, watching basketball, and spending time with his family. Rich was a scholar, a true studier, and an avid reader of Theology.

Rich will truly be missed by many. He was all-around a wonderful man, he was witty, had a dry sense of humor, loved Jesus, was kind, loved his dogs, and would always say, Why use two words to describe something that only needs one? Rich was a humble man. He never really knew the impact he had on others lives. To Brenda, he was her Dream-Maker, she would dream it, and he would make it. She gives him all the credit for the success of her business, The paper-roSe. To many people, Rich was The painless Dentist practicing for over 40 years in Swayzee. He was known as the Scone-Maker, no-one made scones as good as he did. His family called him Butch Crocker, because he was all the time making, baking, or cooking something.

Survivors including his wife, Brenda, are his children, Jenny (Pat) Boyd, Bluffton; Tyler (Missy) Romine, Fort Wayne; Jason Neal, Warren; and Sara Neal, Carmel; siblings, Mark (Linda) Miller, KY; Linda (Lee) Moorman, Carmel; Belinda Sage, Gas City; Sandy (Wade) Malone, Tuscaloosa, AL; and Jane (Chris) Huffman, Jonesboro; grandchildren, Trish Boyd, Maryn Romine, Waylon Romine, and Harrison Neal.
