RICHARD SLOAN, 81, of Eau Claire passed away late Saturday evening at his home surrounded by his family. Born in Boyers, Pa., On October 22, 1934. He was the son of the late Donald Ray and Genevieve (Jane) Zimmerman Sloan. Richard retired with 35 years of employment with Armco Steel in Butler. He also proudly served in the United States Armed Forces. One of his true joys in life was to have his grandchildren over to work on the farm and around the house. When the work was completed there was always a fishing trip or a day of hunting in the fall that followed. This instilled a work ethic and a love for the outdoors that still thrives in them today. Richard was also a great story teller. He had a wealth of knowledge about the history of the Greater Eau Claire Area and the Sloan Family. Richard greatly enjoyed sharing these stories with everyone, especially the younger generation of the family. In Richard’s later years he enjoyed sitting on the back porch with his favorite dog and watching the cardinals feed at the feeders.
