Rudolph Richard Yutzy, 76, of Fayetteville was welcomed into the loving arms of his Lord and Savior on Monday, January 14, 2019.
He was born in Hanau, Germany. At the age of 12, he took a boat with his family to America where he received his citizenship. Richard later enlisted in the Army serving 22 years, earning the rank of First Sergeant. After retirement from the Army, he continued working with the military as a civilian at Womack Army Hospital for another 20 years.
Richard was a devoted Christian, an active member of Fayetteville Community Church, Band of Brothers, the Balm in Gilead Ministries and Rainbow Ministries. He lived his life with a servant’s heart for others and always brought glory to God for all things that are good. Always Encouraging others around him, visiting and praying for those who were sick. Anytime there was a need or want he made it his mission to provide it. It never failed through the provision of God....he provided for others (whether they wanted it or not).
