Richard "Butch" Masek
Richard "Butch" Masek, 72, passed away Monday, Jan. 27, 2020, after a short illness. Per Richard's request, he was cremated and wanted a Celebration of Life gathering of family and friends. That gathering will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, at Whiskey Jo's, 4617 J
St. SW, Cedar Rapids.
He leaves behind his son, Richie Masek Jr.; his wife, Sabrina; and three grandchildren, Zachary, Rylee and Jasmyne, who he loved more than life itself. He also leaves behind his longtime friend, Barbara Williams; and sisters, Barbara Dudley of Missouri and Alberta Bushnell of California.
Richard had a long career as an iron worker and served in the U.S. Army. He was a veteran. He loved the Kansas City Chiefs and Iowa Hawkeyes.
We would like to thank St. Luke's Hospice Care who took care of him in his remaining days.
