Life Story / Obituary
Richard Lynn Maze passed away at his home on December 17, 2023. Richard lived most of his life on the West Side of Grand Rapids. He earned the honor of becoming an Eagle Scout with the Ad Altare Dei emblem and later became a scout master. Richard later founded and operated A & T Tire Company in Standale. But his passion in life was fishing, hunting, donuts, and spending time talking with friends.

He is survived by his daughters, Cristen (Mervin) Tapiador and Jennifer (Greg) Piscopink; grandchildren Gregory III and Lauren Piscopink, Lillian Tapiador; very special nephew, Timothy Maze as well as numerous other nieces and nephews; and his longtime good friends, the Helen Shemanski Family.
