Richard "Rich" William Lares , 56, passed away Jan. 6, 2021 at his
home in Lake Havasu City. He was born Feb. 5, 1964 in Pasadena,
California to Richard and Rose Lares. He met and married the love of
his life, his best friend, Sherilyn, May 16, 1992, in Diamond Bar,
California. They shared 32 years together and were blessed with two
children. Rich and Sherilyn moved from Southern California to Lake
Havasu City, Arizona in 2012.

Rich had been blessed to have met and worked with so many wonderful
people in his life. He worked for more than 18 years at Pacific
Southwest Instruments in Corona, California and has been part of the
Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home family for the past seven years.

He enjoyed bowling, boating, off-roading, NASCAR, black and white TV
shows, watching football every Sunday with his closest friends and he
loved his Raiders. He loved listening to a wide variety of music, but
did not appreciate the sounds of those around him singing. "No
Singing" is what we would often hear from him. He tried to make
everyone think that he did not like Christmas, but we all knew better.
He portrayed himself as "The Grinch" and was even known to all of his
nieces and nephews as "Uncle Grinch" . He had the biggest heart of all
and would do anything for anyone. He might tell you "No" when you
asked him for something but that was just his bratty way of saying of
course I will. He was very sarcastic, grumpy and stubborn, but at the
same time loving, caring and so much fun to be around. He will be
missed very much by so many!

Rich was preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived by his wife Sherilyn, his daughter Brittni, his son
Alex, his brother David, his sister Valerie (Jamie) and so many
friends and family members that will miss him so much!

A celebration of Rich's life will be held at the family home, 310
Jones Drive, on Sunday, Jan. 17, 2021 at 1 p.m. Services will be
officiated by Pastor Chet Anderson.

In honor of Rich, we are asking that the dress code be Grinch themed.
Please come and celebrate Rich's life, share memories and partake in
his favorite foods.

Services were entrusted to the care of Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home.
Thoughts and condolences can be sent to Rich's family at www.lietz-
