Richard D. Motl, age 84, of Clovis, NM went to be with the Lord on May 11, 2018 in Clovis, NM just 15 days before his 85th birthday. He was born on May 26, 1933 in San Angelo, TX to Frank Motl, Sr. and Emillie Batla Motl.

Richard graduated from Anton High School and Texas Tech University in 1954. After college he began his career farming near Anton, TX south of Roundup. Richard married Janet Brazil of Anton, TX in 1954, and the family moved to Clovis, NM in 1965, where he farmed for approximately 25 years.

Richard is preceded in death by: his brothers, Frank Motl, Jr. of Red River, NM and Cecil Motl of Anton, TX; sisters, Violet Pittman of Bakersfield, CA and Dorothy Hooper of Anton, TX; and nephew, Franklin Pittman of Arkansas.

Worth, TX and Jaydean Peters of Corpus Christi, TX; dear friend, Joy Williams of Clovis, NM; and 17 nephews and nieces.

Richard was a well-versed, well-read intelligent man. When he wasn’t working he enjoyed hunting, fishing, snow skiing and water skiing. He will be dearly missed by all.

    I remember visiting the Motls when they lived south of Roundup. Had some good times. Richard's dad and my grandpa Vince Motl were brothers.
