SABULA — Dec. 21, 2013, at the age of 71. Beloved husband of Rose Anne (nee Bueter), loving father of Joan and Alex. A native of Sabula, Iowa, the “island city” in the Mississippi River, Dick graduated with a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Iowa, where he played trumpet in the Hawkeye Marching Band. He began a career in advertising at D’Arcy-MacManus in St. Louis, where he also earned his MBA from St. Louis University, married Anne, and began a family. In 1977, they moved to Wisconsin, where he worked for both Miller and Pabst before many years with Laughlin Constable. He then opened and operated two Schlotszky’s restaurants with a partner. For the past two years, until his death, he sold advertisements for Big River magazine, which features news and stories about the upper Mississippi River. He was a member of the West Allis and Wauwatosa Chambers of Commerce, and very active as a SCORE volunteer, where he assisted entrepreneurs.

Dick loved music. He will be remembered for his appearances in community theater musicals and church pageants. He was a board member of the St. Louis Bach Society and Milwaukee Jazz Experience, and especially enjoyed opera, big band, and Dixieland.
