Richard Lee Mast, of Greeley, passed away peacefully after a short illness, on Thursday, February 7. He was 81. Rich was born to Lester and Bess (Roth) Mast, on April 11, 1937. On July 30, 1955, Rich married his high school sweetheart, Sharen Smith, in Julesburg.

Rich and Sharen lived in Julesburg, CO, until 1980 and then relocated to Greeley. Sharen passed away in 2015, one week short of their 60th wedding anniversary.

On August 5, 2016, Rich married Glenda Hill, of Greeley.

Surviving are wife Glenda Mast, daughter, Cindy Bragdon (Gary) of Severance, CO, son, Josh Mast (Peggy) of Bloomington, IL; grandson Jeremy Riddle (Jamie) of Erie, CO, granddaughter Heather Gearries (James III), of Greenwood, IN, and grandson Jordan Mast of Greenwood Village, CO; four great grandchildren Elijah, Isaac, and Eliana Riddle of Erie, CO, and James Gearries IV of Greenwood, IN; siblings Stan Mast (Ruth) of Kearney, NE, Lorene Phipps of Concordia, KS., Joan Shaffer of Arvada, CO, and Rod Mast (Cheryl) of Phoenix, AZ; stepchildren Larry Steinbecker (Lori) and Shelly McCarty (Matt); Glenda’s grandchildren Josh, Ariel, and Ian Steinbecker; also surviving are many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews.

Rich was a strong man of faith, demonstrating an unmatched work ethic that spanned dozens of jobs throughout his life – whatever it took to support his family. He didn’t know a stranger. His love of God and for his family was evident through his daily interactions. He was compassionate to everyone he met. He was exceedingly generous, most often in private, providing to people in need with no expectation for repayment.

Rich loved life and he was always on the ‘go’ including Generations Church and Hearty Souls fellowships; Denver Bronco games (since the 1960’s), winters in Arizona, out for coffee and meals, drives in his beloved truck, and particularly the golf course with his golfing buddies, foremost of whom was wife Glenda, always his golfing partner. Rich lived the mantra “life is a series of little look forward to’s.”

Rich will be greatly missed by family and friends, coast to coast.

Visitation will be at 9 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 12 at Generations Church, 3600 W 22nd St, Greeley, CO 80634. A memorial service will follow at 10 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Hearty Souls or Silver & Gold Class in care of Generations Churchs, 3600 W 22nd Street, Greeley, CO 80634.

So sad to hear of Richard's sudden illness and passing. We just saw them at the Christmas concert at Generations Church that he called and invited us to. He was a wonderful man. We will miss him very much. My dad Dave Silva knew him for MANY years.
Prayers are with you and all the families during this difficult time. In Chirst, Dan and Elisa Kunkel and David Silva

Rich Mast was very special to me and he had a tremendous impact on my life when I was growing up in Julesburg. Mr. Mast went out of his way to be kind, supportive and he always saw the best in people. His tremendous character, integrity and passion for helping others is reflected in his awesome children. I treasure my time spent with his son Josh in high school playing football, hoops, track and just hanging out. Mr. Mast was our number one fan and whether we won or lost I will never forget how positive he was and how his infectious laugh and big toothy grin always made us feel good about our-self. Very special man, very special family and I 'm so sorry for your loss.

I found out about this much too late to attend his funeral, and was so shocked and heartbroken at the news. I have enjoyed getting to know Richard over the last few years, what a rare treasure of a man! If there were more men like him this world would be an amazing place!! I’m so sorry for your loss, but have no doubt that there will be a beautiful family reunion in heaven someday!!
