It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Founder, Leader and Dear Friend
Richard E “Dick” Phelps, Sr.

Dick went home to the Lord on Wednesday September 8, 2021 with loved ones at his side. He was a great man who touched the lives of many people across the world. He will be deeply missed and forever remain in our hearts and fond memories.

Dick considered all of you who attend our auctions as his friends and has built relationships with many of you. His legacy will continue through US Auctioneers Inc. for many years to come. We hope you will join us.

Dick was a man of faith and loved sharing his favorite prayer that he learned from a longtime customer and friend and we would like to share it with you.

“Lord, put me in front of the right person today, at the right time, at the right place, put the words in my mouth to bring that person closer to you”

You will be truly missed Dick. It is not goodbye, it is see you later.

Arrangements can be found below:


We will be closed on Monday, September 13th, 2021.
