His childhood was shaped by the great people of this community who loved him and gave him outlets for his beautiful mind and creative hands. His forever love, Jacqueline Dykes Shuford, committed to a life of great adventures on February 3, 1968. Together they raised three grateful daughters, traveled miles around the world making memories, and enjoyed the blessings of wonderful friends. Those who have shared a cup of coffee on the porch have heard most of the stories a few times. Dick’s favorite pleasures were being with his amazing wife and family, talking to his incredible friends, and solving a problem. Thank you for all who allowed him these pleasures throughout his life. He was a fierce believer in God, freedom, hard-work, and integrity.
