Richard 'Dick' Osha

(Continued)

Dick was a friend of everyone and was recognized the minute he strolled into his destination. He always wore one of his many favorite hats, especially his “Old Guys Rule” cap. His glasses sat snug to his face held up by his wide grin that always let out a warm greeting. Even from afar, you could tell that he was around. As he always had on a grey t-shirt with a pocket for his notebooks, to the flannel shirts and cargo pants that complemented his relaxed style of life. If you ever had a question, he was there to give you the answer, and if he did not know the answer, he would write it down in the notebook he carried in his pocket.

An adventurous man, Dick began his latest journey with family by his side. He was resting peacefully as the day started with a magnificent rainbow that raised from his childhood home on Sunnyside Road, where his parents Alcy and Ernest (both deceased), raised Dick, Rita his sister, and his brother Charles (deceased). The vibrant rays cast over the town where he raised his family. The day ended with a soft breeze that rustled his favorite front-porch chimes as he was surrounded at his bedside by loving family.

His wife, daughter, two sons, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren will celebrate Dick’s life along with the rest of his friends that have had the opportunity to be around him. We want you to be a part of this celebration of his life.

The celebration will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday at Gill Funeral Home. Services will begin at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday at Gill Funeral Home and conclude at New Veale Creek Cemetery.

Dick was fortunate to have a great family and great individuals that helped him make this journey peaceful. If you would like to make a contribution to a memorial fund, the family asks that you direct them to Gentiva Hospice.
