Richard “Dick” Bournoville, age 85, who passed this life Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife Carol, his family and closest friends and golf buddies.

He was born in Sheboygan to Louis and Nora (Shram) Bournoville. Dick moved to Plymouth in 1933.

As a young man, he liked to ski jump, play football and track. He was a 1946 graduate of Plymouth High School, where in his senior year he was president of the student body and captain-quarterback of the football team.

Dick worked at his parents’ Sunnyside Bar and Grill until he was appointed to the Plymouth Police Department in 1955, retiring in 1985 as chief of police.

Dick married Anna Richter in 1948.

Among the many things he will be remembered for is his quick wit and ability to tell a good story, with the appropriate accents and brogues. Dick married Carol Ogden on Feb. 14, 1993, in Panama City, Fla.

Wednesday night was date night for 25 years with his wife Carol. They liked to visit eating-places critiqued by the restaurant critic of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Several months in winter were spent in Florida for 20 some years and a long fall trip was a must, our favorite time of the year.

Survivors include his wife; son, Gary and his wife, Susan, of Plymouth; daughter, Lynn Hagan and her husband, Chris, of Imperial, Pa.; sister, Sharon Prindiville and her husband, Dan, of West Allis; five grandchildren, Heather Bowser and her husband, Tim; Justin Miller and his wife, Camisha; Jen Shaw and her husband, Josh; Adam Miller and his wife, Angie, and Colin Miller and his wife, Amy; seven greatgrandchildren and four step great-grandchildren, also nieces and nephews.

Dick was a member of St. John Lutheran Church.

He had enduring love for his family, friends, golf, football, racing, and of course the morning coffee group.

Dick was a member of Quit Qui Oc Golf Course for 40 years belonging to the Monday morning league, Tuesday and Thursday evening leagues.

He was a do-or-die Green Bay Packer fan and season ticket holder since 1957.

A private family service will be held at a later date. Schneider Funeral Home & Life Tributes has been entrusted with the arrangements.
