Richard A. 'Rick' Gettinger, 76, passed away Wednesday, April 7, 2021, at Reid Health in Richmond after a battle with Parkinson-Plus. He was born April 12, 1944, in Union City, IN son of the late Carl O. and Mae Louise Elwell Gettinger.
Rick was a lifelong member of the Wesley United Methodist Church, graduated with the Union City Wayne High School class of 1962, was a member of the Lions Club, a member of the Union City McDonalds Gang, and worked at the UCBC/WH for 47 years.

He was preceded by his parents; siblings, Marcia Jo & Allan Dye, Ramon Gettinger.
Visitation is 5-7 PM Monday, April 12, 2021, at the Reichard Funeral Home Inc., 400 W. Deerfield Rd., Union City, IN. Services will follow at 7 PM. Burial will be held later at the convenience of the family.
