Richard D. Cressman

            Richard D. Cressman, 69 years old, of Quakertown, PA, passed away on

Saturday, April 23, 2022 at Grand View Hospital in Sellersville, PA. He was the loving husband of the late Phyllis (Yeary) Cressman, with whom he shared 39 years of marriage before her passing in 2011.

            Born in Sumneytown, PA,  he was the son of Laura (Price) Wagner of Shickshinny, PA and the late James W. Cressman.

            Richard served his country as a Lance Corporal in the United States Marine Corps. He owned and operated Richard Cressman Excavating in Quakertown, PA for many years before he went on to own and operate RCT of Hilltown, LLC; a trucking company that hauled military equipment.

            If he wasn't driving his truck, he was working on his trucks, driving his tractors, working with his backhoe, and attending truck and car shows. Above all of this, his greatest pleasure, was spending time with his grandchildren.

            He was a member of the Red Hill VFW Post 5954 and American Legion Perkiomen Post 184 in Palm, PA.
