Richard William Kontos

August 30, 1929 — July 15, 2021

Richard W. Kontos, loving husband and father, passed away peacefully at home in Noblesville Indiana on July 15, 2021, six weeks before his 92nd birthday.

Dick was born in Waukesha, WI, the son of Greek and Italian immigrants. He proudly served his country as an honored Army Veteran of the Korean War. After his military service, Dick had an esteemed career as a contractor in the construction industry, both locally and internationally. Dick was highly philanthropic and served the Indianapolis community as a Shriner for many years. Dick was an ardent supporter and volunteer of the American Heart Association, serving with his wife, Katy, in their Mended Hearts program.

Dick was a man of great faith. He was a very active parishioner of Trinity Episcopal Church for decades. After moving to Morse Reservoir in the early 90’s, he became active in St Michael's Episcopal Church and served on their vestry for many years.

Dick is described by his family as a man of honor and great faith, a wise counselor and passionately dedicated to his wife and family. Dick held himself and everyone in his life to their highest possible standard, and was always the first to offer his praise and support for his family.

Dick is mourned on earth by his loving wife of 35 years, Katy Kontos, his daughter Leigh Kontos, his stepdaughters and their spouses, Stacey and Dave Sobczak, Julia Weaver and David Ring, and Mary and Bob Thomas. He will be forever missed by his grandchildren and great grandchildren, William (Bill) Kontos, Russell Kontos, Michael Kontos, Jackson DeCoursey, Ryan Todd, Scott Todd, Brittany Sobczak Huntzinger, Sam Sobczak, Katy Sobczak Hiatt, Grace Thomas, Gabe Thomas, Isabel Thomas, Lily Weaver-Eagle, Nate Weaver, Aspyn and Rylee Weaver-Eagle and Eleanor Jane Hiatt, as well as his sister Joan Kontos.
