Richard John Koberna

June 6, 1940 ~ March 28, 2023 (age 82) 82 Years Old


Richard John Koberna of Hudson, Ohio passed away in the afternoon on Tuesday, March 28, 2023 after a long illness. Richard was born to Lillian and Emil Koberna on June 6, 1940 and spent his life in the greater Cleveland area before settling in Hudson in the mid 70’s. He is survived by his wife, Charlene (née Barney); sons, Adam and his wife Suz (Paton), Ben and his wife, Natalie (Lupica); grandchildren, Max, Anna, and Jackson. Richard is also survived by his two brothers, Tom his partner, Jan Beitzel, Harry and his wife, Vickie, and his sister-in-law, Lora Barney.

Richard had a successful 35 year career in advertising. He volunteered at the Happy Days School for children with special needs, all the while being the best husband, dad and grandfather anyone could hope for. He treasured his wife and the devotion they shared. His advice will be sorrowfully missed by his sons, his hugs and songs will be sorrowfully missed by his grandchildren, and his love will be missed by all who knew him. Quick with a joke and kind word, he left each room a bit brighter than he found it.

A celebration of his life will take place at Hudson Meadows, 1275 Barlow Rd, Hudson, OH on the 15th of April, 2023 from 1:30-3:30 pm.

In lieu of flowers donations may be sent to Akron Rotary Camp for Children with Special Needs.
