Dinneen, Dick - (Richard J.)
1927-2004, Age 76

A brilliant, kind, gentle man slipped away on 4/12/04 to continue his adventures in Heaven.  On 3/8 while skiing in CO he was injured by a snowboarder & never recovered from added compications which developed.  Noone loved to ski, golf, bike, read, run, swim, trek, cook, volunteer, hunt, sing, play softball more than Dick! 
Born 6/9/27 to John & Catherine, by age 6 he knew farming in New Richland MN wasn't for him & he left graduation day to serve Navy on WWII destroyer USS HANK.  Dick retired very well respected as Director of Right of Way & Surveys for MN Dept. of Transportation '93 after 42+ yrs.  Both Dick & his wife Margo were very active in their church & shared a rock solid faith that was the absolute core of their marriage.  Every single minute they shared exploring 6 continents together was a priceless gift from God! 
He is survived by: wife Margo; children all in the Twin Cities: Mike, Kate, Tim, Laurie (Shari), & Pat (Liza), Mary (Chris) Haugen, Sharon Margiotta; wonderful grandkids Shannon, Sean, Nick, Mary, Ashley, Samantha, Tony, Michael, Meghan, Steven; younger siblings Dean (Mary), Keith, Sheila (Art) Hopp; in-laws: Arlene, Kent (Cheri) Holen.  Also left behind are his 1st wife Marty; many nieces, nephews, cousins; & a b'zillion friends from New Richland, the HANK, MnDOT, Colonial Church, ULLR Ski Club, Cursillo, Klobuchar Adventure Club.
Services include Fort Snelling Assembly #2 honor guard salute 1:30PM Friday.
