Richard M. Schwartz, 78, passed away Wednesday, June 20, at Kalispell Regional Medical Center in Kalispell Montana.

Richard (Dick) was born on July 28, 1939, to Richard and Lois Schwartz, and was raised in Attica, Indiana. He attended Indiana University where he completed a degree in finance and was part of the R.O.T.C. program throughout his college career. After graduation, he proudly served in the United States Army as a first lieutenant for two years. After leaving the Army, Dick became employed by American National Bank and Trust Co. of Chicago in their commercial lending department. He worked for American National Bank for 32 years and was eventually a Senior Executive Vice-President and member of the bank’s Board of Directors. Dick also served on the Board of Directors of Chicago Metallic Corporation, was treasurer of the Children’s Home and Aid Society of Illinois, and was a member of the Economics Club of Chicago and Northwestern University’s Banking Research Committee. He attended the Stanford University Executive Program in 1981.

After retirement from American National Bank and Trust in 1994, he worked four years with Cole-Taylor Bank of Chicago. Dick also enjoyed being a member of the Standard Club of Chicago and Northmoor Country Club in Highland Park, Illinois, where he thoroughly enjoyed playing golf with friends and family.

In 1966, Dick married Diane Louise Gustafson. Dick and Diane had two children, Kristen Schwartz Pulsifer and Michael Schwartz. Dick and Diane were blessed with three grandchildren, Maggie and Anna Pulsifer, and Philip Schwartz.

In 2004 Dick and his wife moved to Whitefish, Montana, where his passion for golf, and also fishing, flourished. Dick enjoyed Montana, but his first love was always Chicago. Dick is survived by his wife, children, and grandchildren; his brother, Max Schwartz and Max’s wife Kathy Schwartz; brother-in-law, Lawrence Smith; nephews, Stephen Smith and Jeffery Schwartz; and niece, Anne Schwartz Waskom.
