Feb. 12, 1946 – Sept. 1, 2019

Dick (Richard) Stingley passed away on Sept. 1, 2019.

His heart was simply tired.

As per his request, there will be no service or obituary. He would have wanted you only to remember him “ridin’ horses, chasin’ dogs and shootin’ sticks in the backyard.”

“Our dad was a constant in our lives no matter the time or distance. We will miss him,” his family said.

If you would like to honor Dick, consider a donation in his name to one of the organizations he supported: Wounded Warriors or Alaska Mindful Paws. In lieu of a financial contribution, consider demonstrating your love to your family the best way you know how.

“Dick was grateful that he knew true love. His partner of over 30 years was dedicated to him until his last breath. Like him, we are blessed to have her in our lives,” his family said.
