Richard E. Vaughn, age 86, of Rochester Hills, formerly of Farmington Hills, passed away at his home on October 11, 2016. Richard was born in Jackson, MI to Herman and Gladys Vaughn; loving husband of Patricia for 54 years; dear father of Linda (Brad) Wojtowicz, Steve (Sue) Vaughn and Kevin Vaughn; loving grandpa to Christine, Lauren and Sarah Wojtowicz; brother of the late Herman Vaughn. During high school Richard was a cross country state champion who then attended the University of Miami, Florida on a track scholarship. He served his country in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict and graduated with a business degree from Michigan State University. Richard was a proud father of wonderful caring people whom all graduated from Michigan State University (Go Green!). He had many passions that included gardening, collecting Lionel trains, building model planes and a replica scale of the Cutty Sark, golfing, bowling, fishing, and making fudge; though none of these passions were prouder to him than his wife, children, and three granddaughters. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions would be greatly appreciated to Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, P.O. Box 5014, Hagerstown, MD 21741-5014 or donor's choice.
