Richard Lee “Rick” Riemer, age 48, born and raised in Chilton, Wisconsin passed away peacefully with his wife Andrea at his side on Sunday, July 29, 2018 after a long hard-fought battle with type 1 diabetes.  His final days were spent enjoying a draft horse show with his family and friends.  

Rick graduated from Chilton High School in 1988 where he was involved in FFA and the 4-H Riding Club.  Immediately after high school, Rick started his very decorated career in the Draft Horse Industry.  Rick showed horses for several great owners over the years.  He showed horses across North America and became one of the elite trainers and drivers in the industry.  Rick loved to share his passion of draft horses with any and all that showed an interest.  He found it very rewarding to help others to reach their goals in the industry he loved.  In 2015, Rick was inducted into the Wisconsin Draft Horse Breeders Hall of Fame.  

Rick was born on November 20, 1969 to Ronald & Sharon (Green) Riemer who both awaited him in heaven along with his infant son, Tyler.  He was blessed with a son Derrick, a devoted wife, Andrea, along with her children Garrett, Morgan & Brett.  His brother Randy, along with his wife Stacey and children Bailey & Blake and his sister Shelly Geiser, along with her husband David and their children Alayna & Brenna, share in many of his horse memories.  

Funeral service will be at 2:00 pm on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Rantoul (N6080 West River Road Hilbert, Wisconsin 54129) with Rev. J. Patrick Niles officiating.  Burial will follow in the Parish Cemetery.  Friends may call at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton from 3:00 pm until 7:00 pm on Saturday, August 4, 2018 and on Sunday at the church from 12:30 until 1:45 pm.
Our sympathy to Rick's family, we knew Sharon and Ronald years ago. May he rest in peace

Memories are there to remind us of things we take with us forever.
I have many memories I will always cherish and look back on with a smile.
You will never be forgotten because the ones left behind will keep you in their thoughts. May you find peace as you watch from above.

I knew Rick a long time. He was a friend.

I just remember the many summers at the fairs, especially Davenport and Wisconsin. So many great memories from those times!
