Richard Elwood Tiefert
" George"
1-16-1948 to 4-5-2020

Richard was born to James and Beatrice (Daley) Tiefert in San Francisco, California on January 16, 1948. Later he moved to New York where he attended school for awhile and then went into the Army where he received his GED. After the Army he went back to New York where his first child, Crystal, was born.

Later he decided to leave NY and go travel the country side for awhile. He eventually ended up in Colorado where he settled down and started working on the oil rigs. Around 1976 he got married and a few years later they had a couple more kids, Heidi & Brad. In 1994 they got divorced and he moved on.

In 1997 he met Joyce Sobeski and they hit it off. After 22 years they finally got married on April 10, 2019. They had plans to go traveling when they both retired but that ended when he got sick and passed away.

Rick had worked his whole life until he got hurt in 2015 and had to go on oxygen 24/7. He enjoyed working. He also enjoyed going on rode trips, gambling, going out to eat and moving his feet. He loved dinking around the house and just doing different projects.

Richard is survived by his wife Joyce, his children Crystal and Brad Tiefert and Heidi(Kevin) Honeycutt, Grandchildren Gary Fitzsimmons, Tyler, Tiana, and Haley Honeycutt and a large loving family.

He was preceded in death by his parents and 1 step brother.

A celebration of his life will be at 11:00 am on August 11, 2020 at Northern Colorado Crematory, 700 8th Street, Greeley Co, 80631.
