Obituary of Dale R. Richards

Please share a memory of Dale to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Dale "Butch" Richards of Sheatown, Newport Twp., passed away on Thursday, February 15, 2024 at his home. Born February 17, 1945 in Wilkes-Barre, he was the son of the late Dale W. and Dorothy G. Richards of Sheatown. Dale graduated from Newport Township High School, Kings College and received his doctorate from Clayton University. He was a teacher in the Greater Nanticoke Area School District and also was the proprietor of Richards Garden Equipment for 60 years. Dale requested that no social viewing, funeral or burial was necessary. He simply wanted to be remembered as: A person who was eternally grateful for the influence of his grandmother, his uncles and for his exceptional and loving parents. A loving husband who respected his wife. A proud father and grandfather. A teacher who enjoyed helping his students learn and one who valued the profession. A businessman who tried to be fair, loyal and helpful to his customers. A person who enjoyed work, especially with his hands, who had a strong belief in being self-supporting. A person whose true home was the natural environment with the animals, anchored on a remote lake or in the deep woods where true life really exists. An Eagle Scout, who tried to live by The Golden Rule, and derived much pleasure from helping others. Dale is survived by his loving wife, Ann, daughter Colette Richards and husband Shawn Goos of Winter Park, Florida and granddaughter Caleigh Richards-Goos of Louisville, Kentucky. If desired, contributions may be made in Dale's memory to the American Cancer Society.

There will be no viewing or services held.
