Richard L. Cobleigh, age 72, passed peacefully at home on February 20, 2021 after battling multiple medical problems.

Predeceased by his parents, Nelson and Dorothy(Tally) Cobleigh and his daughter, Courtney Davison. He is survived by his wife, Lois(Friel Burns) and four stepchildren; Amy Burns Lemen, William Burns (Christine), Rebecca Burns Powers (Clay), Heather Burns Cary (Edward); grandgirls: Carly Powers, Abby Powers, Audrey Lemen, Caitlynn Davison, Emma Cary, Ava Burns and Sophie Burns; brothers Edward (Heidi) and David, (Jamie); nieces: Carolyn Berndt(Roland), Lisa Fisher(Jason), Heather Tolluck(Josh) and their children; Malina, Max, James and Clara.

Rick was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, attended Brainard High School and the University of Tennessee. He pursued a career in banking, specializing in credit card processing. He was a Systems Architect who worked at Hogan Systems in Dallas and on CSC projects in Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, South Africa, Japan, and the UK.           His last employer was Mastercard, which brought him and Lois to Defiance, Missouri, fifteen years ago. Rick enjoyed living in Callaway Valley with its lake and wonderful neighbors. He also enjoyed spending time at South Padre Island. He was a quiet, laid back gentleman, who was well-liked by all and loved by his family. He was insightful, a good listener, problem solver, and generous grandfather who gave good guidance to all who sought his opinion. Music was a passion he shared with his dearly loved brother, David, and his family. His best buddies were Dennis from Dallas and Hans from Switzerland. He adored those two. Rick was a sharp dresser. Even when walking became very difficult, he ordered new cowboy boots and tie dye Vans! That was Rick. He will be sorely missed.

Due to Covid, a private interment will be held at a later date. Prayers are always welcomed as well as a donation in his name to IHM Church in New Melle, a community he respected and valued.
