Richard Joseph Holan, age 78, of Onalaska, Wisconsin passed away at his home on November 18, 2020.

Richard Joseph Holan was born on January 1, 1942 to parents Joseph and Vlasta (Fencl) Holan in Chicago, Illinois. He attended Blessed Agnes School in Chicago, Illinois. Richard proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy on active duty from 1960 to 1964.

On April 6, 1988, Richard married Leona Batterson in Springfield, TN. He worked as an over the road truck driver for many years and later transitioned to carpentry.

Richard was preceded in death by his wife, Leona; sister, Bernadette and her husband Richard Urban, and their children Richard and Joseph Urban, nephew-in-law, Robert Jensen., George Meyer, nephew Joseph Holan, and great nephew Jeffery Jensen.

A special thank you to Harold and DelRose Jones, neighbor of Richard, for the many hours they spent helping Richard do things he couldn't do for himself.

Also, a big thank you to Deb Fauber, his caregiver, for the many years she spent with Richard, even to the last day. The family would also like to thank the doctors and nurses at Mayo Clinic, Mayo Clinic Hospice, and Bright Star for the care they provided.
