Richard "Dick" Church, 77, died Saturday morning, Oct. 30, 2010, at his home, surrounded by family and friends.

His funeral service will be 1 p. m. Friday, Nov. 5, 2010, at Holland & Bonine Funeral Chapel, with Pastor John Chapman officiating.

Memorials in Richard's honor may be made to Bear Paw Hospice, C/O NMHF, P.O. Box 1231, Havre, MT 559501. Services and arrangements have been entrusted to Holland & Bonine Funeral Home.

Richard was born June 12, 1933, to George and Ruby Church on the family farm in Turner, Mont.

He married Darlene Richards in Havre, and together they had five children. The couple later divorced, and he married Judy Neault.

Richard enjoyed working on cars, camping and fishing. He enjoyed having coffee with his friends and had a great sense of humor because he was always laughing and joking with his friends and family. Richard was devoted to his family.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his son, Randy Church; a brother, Wesley George Church; and three sisters Sadie Carlson, Cleo Panek and Myrtle Kneedler; and his wife Judy (Neault) Church.

Richard is survived by his four children, Rick Church of Boise, Idaho, Ruby Cornett Burney of Bryan, Texas, Bob Church of San Jose, Calif., and Mary Ann Woods of Kelso, Wash. ; sisters, Pearl Anderson of Gresham, Ore., LuElla Henderson of Tacoma, Wash., and Joyce Warren of Barstow, Calif. ; his grandchildren, Mandy Church, Tyler Church, Kevin Church, Jeff Staples, Kimberly Staples, Cynthia Cords, Robert Cornett Jr., Darna Cornett, Randy Cornett and Tracie Smotherman.

A special thank you is extended to his caregivers: Patti Purkett, Wesley, Tammy Church, Kathy Swinney and Hosanna Hutchins.
