Dick Dale Voorhees, 69, of Three Oaks, died, Sunday, July 23, 2023.
His life began December 30, 1953 in LaPorte, Indiana, the fourth of six children born to Isaac and Dixie Voorhees. He married Risa Ann Flood in New Buffalo, Michigan in 1986. After thirty-three years, she preceded him in death March 22, 2020.
Dick cherished his family, especially his grandchildren. His cats also meant a great deal to him. He loved being outdoors and was an avid fisherman. He also enjoyed gardening and certainly helped keep the population of Praying Mantis’s alive in our area. Dick will be remembered for his sense of humor and practical jokes. He was a generous soul and always willing to donate his time and tools to help anyone in need. He gave the benefit of the doubt and never spoke ill of anyone. He was a hard worker but truly enjoyed his retirement. Dick and Risa instilled in their kids the value of working hard and doing things to the best of their abilities.
Dick will be greatly missed by family and friends. He is survived by his daughter, April Lewis of Sparta, Tennessee; four sons, Richard Lewis, Eric (Sarah) Lewis, both of Sparta, Tennessee, David (Amanda) Witter of Three Oaks, Timothy (Angela) Witter of Watsontown, Pennsylvania; ten grandchildren, Journee, Justice, Steven, Cody, Elijah, Annekah, Jayden, Levi, Trace, Trent; two great granddaughters, Lilly, Emma; three sisters, Edna (Robert) Litke of Florida, Dixie (Greg) Krueger of Hudson Lake, Melody Voorhees of LaPorte, Indiana; two brothers, Russell (Teresa) Voorhees of Townson, Montana, Victor (Rose) Voorhees of Florida; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his beloved wife.
Family and friends will gather in remembrance of Dick and Risa, Friday, August 4, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. until time of memorial service at 2:00 p.m. in Wagner Family Funerals Pobocik Chapel, 106 Ash Street East, Three Oaks.
