Former Redmond Citizen of the Year Dies 

Richard “Ric” Nowak, who ran Country by Design Antiques in downtown Redmond, passed away June 17.

Richard “Ric” Nowak, who ran Country by Design Antiques in downtown Redmond, passed away June 17.

Nowak was well known throughout Central Oregon through his roles on the Redmond City Council, the Deschutes County Landmarks Commission, the Redmond Historical Society, and on the Redmond Chamber of Commerce and Convention Visitors Bureau Board.

In 2009, he was named Redmond’s Citizen of the Year by the Redmond Chamber of Commerce and CVB.

As a young reporter I would often visit Ric in his antique shop where next to the glass cases of figurines and flower vases he would expound on various facets of life in Redmond and offer up great story tips. His warm smile is easy to recall even now, seven years later.

He will be missed by many.

A graveside service will be held Friday, June 22 at Redmond Memorial Cemetery at 2pm. A gathering will follow at Timbers in Redmond where attendees will be encouraged to share their memories of Ric.
