Richard P. 'Dick' Kuntz


Richard P. "Dick" Kuntz, 67, passed away on March 10, 2019, in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, where he had resided for the last year and a half of his life. Born March 19, 1951, in Peru, Indiana, he was the son of the late George William "Bill" (Joan) Kuntz, of Melbourne, Florida, and Carolyn (nee Blake) Kelly, of Lake San Marcos, California, who survives him.
Richard graduated from Maconaquah High School. He went on to receive a bachelor's degree from Purdue University, where he was a proud member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. He later graduated with a master's degree in business from City University, Washington. Richard worked for many years in the steel industry, then later in his career he focused on the medical device field. His adventurous spirit led him to live all over the United States, including California, Oregon, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Missouri, Washington, and Texas. He liked to entertain his loved ones with stories about his adventures, and to tell jokes to make people laugh. He was a lifelong Christian and dedicated to his faith. At the end of his life, he worked as a volunteer sheriff and helped local orphans.
Richard is survived by his wife, Loan Tran, of Henderson, Nevada. He is also survived by his daughter, Ashley Becker, of St. Louis, Missouri, his son, Blake Kuntz, of Carmel, Indiana, and their mother, his former wife, Cynthia Burge, of Westfield, Indiana.

As VP of Operations at Cyberonics in Houston TX, Richard led the manufacturing of a revolutionary new medical device that improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people touched by severe epilepsy! He never stopped working, thinking or dreaming. Rest In Peace, Richard.
