Richard Kalis

April 8, 1947 — January 27, 2024

Osnabrock, ND

Richard Kalis, 76, of Osnabrock, ND, passed away January 27, 2024, at Pembina County Memorial Hospital in Cavalier, ND.

Richard Joseph Kalis was born April 8, 1947, in Walhalla, ND, to Theodore and Angelina (Schwartz) Kalis. He grew up and attended school in Walhalla. He married Ramona Sanders on June 15, 1968, at Christ Lutheran Church in Neche, ND. They lived in Grand Forks, ND, for a short time and then moved to Champlin, MN, in 1972. Richard painted for the Painters Union and then worked as a maintenance painter for Honeywell until retiring in 2008. He and Mona decided to sell their condo in MN and lake cabin in Wisconsin for a simpler life and moved to Osnabrock. They enjoyed North Dakota during the warmer weather and traveled during the winter months. They visited many places, but their favorites were Yellowstone; Branson, Missouri; Mesa, AZ; and they especially loved Panama City Beach in Florida. Richard was a very handy person and was able to fix almost anything. He was a bit of a teaser and had a good sense of humor. Richard enjoyed hunting and fishing, riding motorcycle, collecting vintage jewelry, and was passionate about gun collecting. The most important thing to him was his family.

Surviving Richard are his wife, Ramona, of Osnabrock, ND; son Kim of Osnabrock, ND; grandson Brett Newell; great-granddaughter Lakyn Irene Newell; and siblings: Lorraine Rude, Charles Kalis, and Rodney Kalis. He was preceded in death by his parents; son Shawn; and siblings: Elizabeth Schill, Robert Kalis, Patricia Graveline, and Angeline Larson.
