The Glasgow Courier - Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Richard D. Hibl


Richard D. Hibl, 76, passed away peacefully at his winter home in Cordes Lakes, Ariz., on Monday, Feb. 15, 2016.

Memorial services will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Mayer, Ariz., on Wednesday, April 27, at 1 p.m., and at St. Raphael's Parish in Glasgow on Wednesday, May 18, at 1 p.m. Receptions will follow each service.

Born Sept. 20, 1940, at the Dale Hospital in Poplar, Mont., to Adolph and Martha Hibl, his love of Montana's Roosevelt and Valley counties and his hometown of Poplar ran deep. He also loved his Arizona community, finding kindred spirits at the 50's Diner and caring for his trees, roses and cacti that thrived in Yavapai County's mild weather.

He graduated from Poplar High School in 1958, and shortly after entered the Army Reserve, serving from September 1959 through August 1964. After his service in the Army Reserve, he started a long career making a living as a roustabout on oil fields, driving big fuel rigs and farming. He cited, "paying off the loan on the farm" as his biggest accomplishment, along with establishing a trust benefitting Cardiac Care at St. Vincent Healthcare.

Preceding him in death are his parents; four siblings, Mary Hibl Lowe Deschine, Alice Hibl Thorsen, Robert Hibl and Dorothy Hibl Gross.

Survivors include his brother, Ed, of Reno, Nev.; and although he wasn't married, his family includes 17 nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial to St. Vincent Healthcare Foundation.

Arrangements are by David's Desert Chapel in Wickenburg, Ariz.
