Richard (Dick) Bruce Champlin
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Richard, Dick to his friends, was born April 29, 1924, and died peacefully in his Sacramento, Calif., home on July 6, 2012, at 88 years of age.
He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Lois; seven children; 13 grandchildren and a plethora of great-grandchildren.
Dick lived a full and eventful life with few regrets. He lived in the moment, especially his last years. He loved his family and those who knew him will remember his quick wit and infectious humor. Anyone Dick met was never a stranger for long.
His graveside memorial will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, May 31, in Ouleout Valley Cemetery, 855 Main St., Franklin. A celebration of Dick’s life will follow at the Little Red School Community on Otsego County Highway 11, between West Oneonta and Laurens. All are welcome.
