Richard “Dick” Loveless passed away Saturday November 13th, 2021 in his home while surrounded by his loved ones.
Born in Syracuse NY on April 24, 1951 to his beloved parents Harley and Evelyn Loveless, Dick spent his childhood working on his grandparents farm, flying kites and being spoiled as the baby of the family. After graduating highschool, Dick went on to study the electrical trade which he grew to love, spending 31 years of service as a skilled trades electrician at New Process Gear until his retirement in June 2002. He carried this skill set and knowledge with him until the day he passed.[Text Wrapping Break][Text Wrapping Break]Throughout his adulthood, Dick spent much of his time becoming an avid bowler, for which he obtained a perfect game. Following in his father’s footsteps, he perfected the game of cribbage. He also worked to become a competitive horseshoe player, with his best partner and wife, Sandy. Dick had a fond love of all things western, the art of flying, and watching his children grow up to play sports, participate in dance recitals and other hobbies. Dick loved family dinners and all things food. He was an all-American man, who was a very proud Ranger Dad, enjoyed the “golden age of music” between the 50s&60s and loved spending time with his friends at his favorite stops.
Dick is survived by his loving wife, Sandra Shaffer Loveless, his son Thomas (Mary) Loveless, daughters Jennifer & Nikki (CJ) Loveless, his twin brother Raymond (Patti) Loveless, brother-in-law Wilfred (Linda) Bushnoe, his grandchildren Evelyn, Ben & Matt, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews. Dick is predeceased by his parents, Harley & Evelyn, his sister Linda Bushnoe and brothers Robert & Ronald Loveless.
Incredibly dedicated to his loving family and friends, Dick was one of a kind and will be deeply missed. Forever in our hearts, we love you always.
