SEATTLE — Richard Deane Hild, 69, of Seattle, beloved son, brother and friend, passed away quickly on Sunday, Jan. 17, 2016, of cardiac arrest.

Rick was born on Nov. 9, 1946, in Ironwood, Mich. He attended schools in Babbitt, Minn., Zion, Ill., and graduated from Federal Way High School in Washington in 1964.

He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1964-’68. He returned to Ely, Minn., to attend Vermilion Community College. He opened Rick’s Clip Joint in 1975 and spent many years cutting hair and entertaining all who knew him.

Rick later moved to Palm Beach, Fla., where he worked as a butler/chauffeur, most notably for Donald Trump, at Mar Lago Mansion, where he met Prince Charles. He eventually moved back to Washington and opened up a hair salon in the Living Court Assisted Living Community. He took pride in his work and helping others. He retired in 2008 and moved to Seattle.

Rick was always up for a good time and having fun. No one is ever gone as long as there is someone to remember. We all love you and miss you.

He is survived by his mother, Doris Hild, of Enumclaw; brothers, James (Mary) Hild and Jeff Hild; sisters, Lynn (Frank) Mathiason and Allison (Dan Conte) Morefield; and many nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his father, Gilbert Hild.
