Richard A. Musolf


Richard A. Musolf, age 83, of Blaine, Minnesota, was called to heaven on January 3rd, 2022. Richard was born and raised in Brainerd, Minnesota, and married the love of his life, Susan in 1960. He will be remembered for his passionate love and kind-hearted devotion to his wife, children, grandchildren, family, and friends. Rich is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Susan; his children: Gregory (Jeanne), Leanne, Jeffrey (DeAnna); his 11 grandchildren: Allison, Zachary, Matthew, Kaylee, Jerod; Nicholas (Angela), Amanda, Brittany (Scott), Tyler, Alex (Shane), Meagan (Connor); and his 11 great-grandchildren: Natalie, Luke , Thomas, Fiona, Annabelle, Hayden, August, Aria, Jon, Michael, and Isaac; and beloved nieces, nephews, and countless other relatives and friends. Rich joins his beloved family in heaven, parents: Alvin & Hazel Musolf; grandsons: Jeremy Musolf, Alex Engelbrekt, Levi & Hezekiah Peoples; sister, Beverly (David) Bisek and nephew Thomas Bisek. We believe the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, Romans 6:23. Rich had an adventurous spirit of joy and enjoyed creating experiences of “togetherness” with family and friends. He was committed to celebrating & honoring people, especially each child, grandchild, and his wife. It gave him great pleasure to challenge us all by creating opportunities golfing, boating, poolside, skiing, traveling, and sharing dinners out! Rich taught us all “Love is something you build!” A Christian Family Service of God’s Word will be held at Messiah Lutheran Church, Forest Lake and Interment at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis will be held at a later date to celebrate Rich’s life.
