Richard Paul Liszka passed away unexpectedly of natural causes at his home on Thursday, November 28, 2019.

He was a beloved son of Thomas Paul and Anne (Bassick) Liszka. Richard was born on July 12, 1963. He was a lifelong resident of Greenville, graduating from Reynolds High School in 1981 and Westminster College in 1985. Richard began employment in 1985 with First Western Bank in New Castle and most recently was a Vice President Senior Credit Officer for Farmer’s National Bank of Emlenton.

Richard was a lifelong and dedicated member of St. Michael Parish. He quietly supported worthy causes and though he never said much his actions spoke volumes.

He was humble and generous to a fault. Though a particularly savvy banker, he loved his animal husbandry hobby and delighted his family with his fresh farm eggs, holiday turkeys, blueberry patch and pets. He considered himself a full time chicken and pheasant farmer and part-time banker.

Richard is survived by his mother, Anne, and three sisters: Lisa (Charlie), Lori (Ken), Paula, (Edward) and three brothers: Thomas (Mary), Todd (Anne) and Scott as well as many nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his father, Thomas and great-niece, Alaina.  Richard will be greatly missed. Our hearts are broken.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Michael Roman Catholic Church, 85 N. High St., Greenville, PA 16125.

    From a family friend in Texas: I still cannot conceive the thought that Richard is gone. Richard was one of the most considerate and thoughtful beings God created. I am a better person for meeting and for knowing Richard. I am honored and blessed to have walked earth with him. Richard, thank you for being my friend. To all the Liska family – I grieve with you.
