Richard â€˜Dickâ€™ Warren
(April 7, 1947 - Feb. 8, 2016)
Richard â€œDickâ€ Warren died Monday, Feb. 8, 2016, at Spirit Mountain Hospice in Cody.
He was born April 7, 1947, in Long Prairie, Minnesota, to Ralph and Rosella (Scott) Warren.
Dick attended Carter Country School in Todd County, Minnesota. He graduated in 1965 from Eagle Bend High School in Eagle Bend, Minnesota. Dick then went on to receive his associateâ€™s degree from Dunwoody College of Technology in St. Paul, Minnesota.
On Sept. 20, 1969, Dick married the love of his life, Janet Lee, at St. Josephâ€™s Catholic Church in Bertha, Minnesota.
The couple lived in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, for one year before moving to Powell in June 1970. Dick worked for Okay Chevrolet as an automotive mechanic. He also worked for Whitlock Motors, Big Horn Co-op and Garvin Motors until starting his own business, Dickâ€™s Repair, for the last several years.
Dick was a member of the Powell Eagles Club and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
His four grandchildren were the love of his life. They called him Grandpa Dibble. He never missed any of their activities, whether it was clogging, baseball, basketball, swimming, soccer, volleyball, goat or horse showmanship and riding. Dick taught them all about gun safety and hunting.
Dick enjoyed hunting, fishing, attending car shows and swap meets and, of course, garage sales!
He had an enormous amount of love and compassion for all animals, especially dogs and cats. His family called him their St. Francis of Assisi.
He was preceded in death by his parents, aunts, uncles, and a niece and nephew.
Dick is survived by his wife of 46 years, Jan; son John (Stephanie) Warren and daughter Stephanie (Rick) Ramsey, all of Powell; daughter Suzie (Brandon) Rogge of Laurel, Montana; grandchildren Rylee and Raelynn Ramsey and Kyler and Korbyn Warren.
