Richard "Ric" Lumbard


After a yearlong battle of trying to recover from a heart attack, Richard "Ric" Charles Lumbard, 50, of Marion, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, and is now whole again and with Jesus. A private family memorial service was held.
Ric was born on April 30, 1968, in Lincoln, Neb., the son of Leigh "Del" and Joan (Davis) Lumbard. He graduated from East High School in Des Moines and later obtained a college degree. On Aug. 2, 1986, Ric was united in marriage to Christine Rene Hanson in Des Moines, Iowa. He will be dearly missed by his wife, children and all who knew him.
He is survived by and lovingly remembered by his wife of 32 years, Christie Lumbard; children, Tanayia (Jesse) Bode, Tara (Christian) Bray, Tristen (David) McGarvey and Tyler (Lauren) Lumbard; parents, Del and Joan Lumbard; and brothers, Mike (Pam) Lumbard and family and Marvin (Diana) Lumbard and family.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family to be designated later.
