Obituary for Richard John Maier

Richard John Maier, age 73, of Hampton Township passed on Monday, December 30, 2019.

Born March 1, 1946 in Hampton Township, he was the son of the late George and Louise Rose (Hofer) Maier.

Richard was the beloved brother of George A. Maier and his wife, Anita, of Hampton Twp., who admired him as the “Never Give up” brother of love and the late Anne Marie Poe and late Louise M. Beury; uncle of Gregory Poe, Keith (Kris) Beury, Kimberly Beury, George Maier, Greg Maier; step nieces, Dr. Dina (Harry) Myers and Danielle Sinicrope and sister-in-law of Darlene Campeau.


Richard was a very special person born with epilepsy, which he fought to overcome most of his life. Despite his handicap, he earned an Associate’s degree from Community College. At age 35, the miracle drug Tegretol helped him to overcome his seizures allowing him to work. The rest of his life he worked at Richland Shop N Save where hundreds remember him as “the man with the helmet” who walked to and from work every day. Richard was the man with the smile who sang songs, carried their groceries or had a joke as he did almost every job including pushing carts through the snow.

Richard was a devoted Christian who sang at St. Catherine’s for over 50 years and also the North Hills Chorale. He was a walker. He walked to work and to church. Many friends and acquaintances would pick him up along the way.

Richard was not a millionaire or a professor or doctor but he was a special person. All who knew him admired his sense of humor and his determination and strength. He never gave up his faith and love of humanity and God. Now he is walking with God.

Visitation will be from 2-4 and 6-8 pm on Friday, January 3, at King Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Inc. 2841 Woodland Circle, Allison Park.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10 A.M. on Saturday, January 4, 2020, at St. Catherine of Sweden RC Church in Allison Park.

He will be laid to rest at Hampton Cemetery in Allison Park.
