Richard “Dick” Eisbach, 86, Galena, formerly of Byron, MN passed away 

January 17, 2024, surrounded by his wife, Geraldine, his brother John, and sister-in-law Ginger. A family gathering and celebration of life is being planned for later this year. The Furlong Funeral Chapel, Galena is assisting the family. His final months were spent at home in his cabin that he and his brother John built together on the  family’s land called Wooded Wonderland in Galena, IL. He was born March 30, 1937, in Minneapolis, MN, the son of John A. Sr. and Lois S. (Keskitalo) Eisbach. Dick was an Air Force Veteran, serving from 1958 to 1964. He was a Weapons Control Systems Mechanic, headquartered at Lowry Airforce Base, Colorado. Dick also served as a technical training supervisor and instructor in the Air Force. He was then employed by IBM until his retirement. Upon retirement, he moved to his cabin in the woods in Galena. He enjoyed spending his days at the sawmill with his brother John. Dick enjoyed classical music, loved to sing and sip a good glass of wine, and of course loved his coffee. Spending time with and giving a hard time to his nieces and nephews always made Dick laugh. Dick is survived by his wife, Geraldine, their three children, Karl (Jan) Eisbach, Cheryl (Jerry) Kalasky, and Eric Eisbach; grandchildren, Erin (Clayton) Yank, Matthew Cruzan, Allison Eisbach, two brothers, David (Liyuza) Eisbach, and John (Ginger) Eisbach, and many nieces and nephews, and multiple great-nieces and nephews. The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Amanda Kevern for her care and support of Dick during this journey. Your care, compassion, and humor will never be forgotten. A special thank you to Father Barch for his assistance in helping Dick on his spiritual journey.
