Richard Joseph Schillig, age 70, of Lewisburg, died Wednesday, October 7th, 2020 in the VA Hospital of Nashville.

He was a native of Harrisburg, Ohio, the son of the late Herman Schillig and Gertrude Smith Schillig. He was a retired employee of TN Technical Coatings and a member of the St. John's Catholic Church.
