“Yet there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take, no matter where it’s going.”
Richard (Dick) Philip Fiedler passed peacefully at home in Auburn on October 17, 2017.
Richard is by his survived by his four daughters Corrinne (Zenobia), Joan (Craig) Geyer, Diane (Wm. Dean) Farrell, and Susanne Duren; his grandchildren Wm. Ian (Sara) Farrell, and Caitlin (Kyle) Luccio; and three great grandchildren Athena, Wm. Henry, and Eleanor. His wife Margaret (Evans) Fiedler, parents Arthur Harry and Myrtle Corrinne (Texley) Fiedler, and two brothers Arthur and William (Bill) Fiedler preceded him in death.
Dick’s 50 year railroad career began with his beloved Northern Pacific Railroad, which became the Burlington Northern, and finished with driving for Amtrak in 1994.
Dick served as a city council person for the City of Auburn from 1970 until 1973.
Dick was a dedicated caregiver to his dear Margaret for many of her later years – they surely will spend their time together playing bridge or working the day’s crossword puzzle.
