Richard E. Waugh

Today, we bid farewell to our beloved friend, father, grandfather, and great grandfather Richard Edwin (Dick) Waugh.  It was difficult not to be overwhelmed by the sheer force of Dick's personality, his laughter still echoing in our hearts. He was more than just a man; he was a whirlwind of humor, wit, and boundless generosity.
When Dick entered a room, it wasn't just his presence that commanded attention; it was the energy he exuded, the infectious joy that seemed to radiate from him effortlessly. Dick had a knack for turning even the dullest moments into vibrant memories, his quick wit and jovial nature lighting up the darkest corners.
But beyond Dick's laughter and charm lay a deep well of love, particularly for his family. His devotion knew no bounds, and he took pride in providing for them in every way possible. Whether it was through his successful business ventures or his unwavering support, Dick ensured that his loved ones were always taken care of.
Dick's lifestyle mirrored his larger-than-life personality, with regular trips to Vegas that became legendary among his family and friends. Yet, amidst the glitz and glamour, he remained grounded, never forgetting his roots or the importance of family. 
Dick's pet store wasn't just a business; it was a testament to his commitment to his loved ones. He poured his heart and soul into it, knowing that it would serve as a legacy for generations to come. And just as Dick nurtured his family, he nurtured the relationships he built, whether it was with his closest friends or the patrons of his store.
Today, as we say our final goodbyes, let us remember not just the laughter and the jokes, but the warmth and kindness that defined him. Though Dick may no longer be with us in body, his spirit lives on in the countless lives he touched, the smiles he brought, and the love he shared. And for that, we are eternally grateful. Rest in peace, dear friend, knowing that you will always hold a special place in our hearts.
