May 30, 1949 - October 5, 2017
Sandwich, Illinois | Age 68


Richard A. Poulos, 68 of Sandwich, IL passed on Thursday, October 5, 2017 peacefully at his home, beside his loving wife, Nancy. Rick was born May 30, 1949 in Chicago, IL to the late Ginger Poulos (Staflin) and Howard Rentsch.
A Celebration of Rick's Life will be held on Sunday, October 15, 2017 from 1:00-4:00, with a service @ 3:30 at The Healy Chapel, 370 Division Dr. Sugar Grove, IL 60554. Friends and family are also invited to continue sharing memories at The Fireside Grille, 49 Sugar Ln. Sugar Grove, IL immediately following the service.
Rick was a small business owner all of his adult life. He began in construction and worked his way into owning a company with his wife, and several employees and drivers beside him, in transportation for the Department of Defense. Rick prided himself in the success of this company and the employees who continue running it today. In Rick's
free time, he loved spending time with family and friends. He spent much of his time boating and fishing, alongside Nancy and with friends, in the warm weather and sunshine. He also spent a lot of time making adventures and memories that will never be forgotten
by his four grandchildren. Whether it was Command Central, digging for treasures, or
whittling he always knew that teaching the grandkids life skills, to have fun and to live each day to its fullest was extremely important. When time allowed, Rick enjoyed woodworking and making furniture-many of us have pieces that will remain a constant reminder of his hard work and talent. Rick brought a smile and a laugh, to all lives that he touched.
Rick is survived by his loving wife Nancy (Bouda-Poulos); his daughter Kimberley Chudik (husband Brian) of Crystal Lake, IL; his son Marc Poulos (wife Ellen) of Naperville, IL; his grandchildren Cullen and Emma Chudik, and; Gavin and Tess Poulos.
