Richard "Dick" Lee Schuck

Richard Lee Schuck "Dick" born October 19, 1926 in Hazard, Kentucky, passed away at age 83 on March 8, 2010 quietly in his sleep at home in Fillmore, California. Dick struggled with emphysema for 15 years. He masked his pain with a smile and a joke.
Dick was a member of VFW of Santa Paula, he was a lifelong Mason and member of the 82nd Airborne in World War 2.
Dick was an adventurer and a traveler. His work took him to Iran for many years where he lived and worked for Aramco Oil.
For the last 14 years of his life he lived in the El Dorado senior community with his wife of 16 years Marion. On any given day you would see him walking his dog "Hey you" or working on his backyard making a waterfall. He loved to visit with his friends and neighbors. He really loved to brag about his children. Every holiday he would take them around to show them off.
It is difficult to capture Dick's personality in words. Every memory his loved ones have of him is with a big smile on his face and cracking a joke.
His optimistic attitude, his love of life, his great stories and his ability to befriend all those around him made him someone we will never forget.
He is survived by his wife Marion and his five children Henry, Sheva, Debra, Kimberly, Pamela and his grandchildren Shelby, Amanda and Mitchel.
All Dick’s friends are welcome to attend his memorial which will take place on Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 11am at the Fillmore Senior Center.
