In Memory of Richard ‘Rich” Kaske

It is with much sadness that on behalf of Addison Township that we inform you of the passing of former Addison Township Highway Commissioner Rich Kaske.  Rich passed away on January 7, 2022.

Rich began working at the Highway Department on October 19, 1981.  In 1986 he was promoted to Highway Foreman and then was appointed to the position of Highway Commissioner in 2008 and was elected to that position in 2009 and 2013.

During his thirty plus years with Addison Township Rich worked diligently on behalf of the residents making sure snow was plowed, trees trimmed, culverts repaired, bridges maintained, mandated regulations were met and knowing every inch of the unincorporated areas along with the  needs of those unincorporated residents.

Also, Rich and the crew were always the first one to lend a hand to other Townships in times of misfortune, showing great concern for those communities as well.

On behalf of  the entire Township; Administration, Assessor and Highway Department  we mourn the passing of Rich. We will always remember his fabulous smile, but most of all his dedication and loyalty to the Township.  We ask that you remember Rich in your prayers.
