Richard D. Gierloff, 68, of Gilbert, Arizona, passed away at home on Monday, April 9, 2018.

Richard, the son of Donald and Dorothy Gierloff, was born on March 23, 1950. He attended St. Thomas the Apostle grade school and Crystal Lake Central High School.

As a young man, Richard moved to Phoenix, Arizona. He earned his undergraduate degree from Arizona State University and a Juris Doctor degree in law from the University of Arizona, Tucson in 1980.

The Arizona Bar Association recognized Richard as a certified specialist in criminal law. He also gained approval to try cases before the United States Supreme Court.

He was a very hard-working and dedicated lawyer before his failing health caused him to give up his practice.

He was a life-long Cubs fan like his father.

Richard is survived by his loving fiancee, Christine Berry; her son, Jason Berry; Richard's dear son, Thomas (Vicki) Gile; his loving daughter, Nora Gierloff (Emil King); and dear grandsons, J.T. Gile and Hayden King. He is also survived by his loving sisters, Linda Nicholas and Laurel (Thomas) Hlobil, both of Fox River Grove; as well as a nephew, Mark Hlobil; nieces, Kendra Hlobil, Nina (Tim) Jarosz, Johanna Nicholas; and many cousins. He is remembered by his stepsisters, Ruth Ann (Willard) Pierce, Debbie (Dr. Robert) Williams, Earla (Bill) Van Orden; and step nephews and nieces.

Richard was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Thomas; and stepmother, Susanna.

There will be a family gathering in Gilbert, Arizona.

The Falconer Funeral Home in Gilbert, Arizona is handling the arrangements.
