Richard “Rich” McDonagh, age 74, of LaBolt, SD, was received by Jesus to live with our Father on March 6th, 2021.
Rich lived a full and joyous life, proud of his US Marine status, and was a lifetime patriot. His primary and ultimate joy was his family, as he kept each member close to his heart. He was an entertaining storyteller and loved to make people laugh. He also had a vast love of learning, and greatly enjoyed sharing his knowledge with others when possible. Rich also enjoyed sharing his Irish heritage, gathering with friends and family, cooking traditional Irish fare. He will be deeply missed.
