Dick was born on December 9th, 1930, in Marshalltown, Iowa, to Wayne Burdett and Dorothy Peril (Fiscus) Stackhouse. He graduated from the Conrad Consolidated School in 1948 and served our country honorably in the United States Army from 1951 until 1953. Dick maintained a lifelong commitment to various veterans' service organizations and was a past commander of American Legion Post 681 in Conrad IA.
On March 31st, 1957 he was united in marriage to, Janet Ann Hilsabeck, of Liscomb, Iowa. They settled into farming on the home place of Dick's grandfather near Albion, Iowa, where they raised three sons. In the 1970's they expanded their hog business with Dick serving several terms as president of the Marshall County Pork Producers and becoming an Iowa Master Pork Producer in 1977. He also served on the board of directors of Conrad Cooperative (now part of Mid-Iowa) and was active in many other farm organizations. Dick continued farming until health issues slowed him down this past year.
Left to cherish his memory is his devoted wife of 63 years, Janet; their children: Kirk Stackhouse of Marshalltown IA, Kent (Deb) Stackhouse, of Waterloo IA; their grandchildren: Jessica Stackhouse, Brooke Stackhouse, and a sister, Lila (Lee) Kline of Des Moines.

Dick and Janet's house was so much fun to play and grow up there with their kids. He was so proud of his hog operation as he should of been. Felt so welcomed there as a city girl playing in the hay bales, the tunnels they made, we thought they were the luckiest kids to live there, we didn't know the work that they had to do before they came to school everyday, all the boys are gentlemen. You couldn't get a better family, so sorry for his loss, will miss his stories about my Dad, the trouble they got into.
I am sorry to hear of Dicks passing, I always enjoyed his conversations when we were both involved with Conrad American Legion. He was a terrific legionaire and I considered him a good friend. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
What a great picture of Dick. He is backed by a great looking corn field that he would be so proud of. Dick was a guy that did most things very well. Excellent farmer, livestock farmer and did his community work like being on the Coop Board like he was very proud to be there. He was a good card player and also a good coffee drinker in the later years. I know he leaves many good times as a husband, father and friend. Deane Adams
I am so sorry Janet, Kirk and Kent many great memories of the times we were together.
