Booye, Richard ‘Dick’ age 86, of Ventnor passed away peacefully at home, on March 18, after a long battle with Parkinsons.
Richard graduated ACHS. He served his country in the Korean War with the U.S Navy. He worked for Ole Hansen & Sons at the Margate Bridge for over 30 years before retiring in 1991. He was a member of the Margate VFW Post 9311. He loved to fish and go on his weekly trips to the Showboat with his buddy Ralph. He loved the buffet and pulling the one armed bandit. But his passion was his Harley receiving an acknowledgement from Atlantic County HOG as the oldest member.
He is predeceased by his sister Claire Anderson. Richard is survived by his daughter, Gail of Ventnor; sister-in-law, Jeanne Wells of Margate; along with many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to express their appreciation to his caregivers: Denise, Annie, Wil, and Mildred, for their years of devoted service. Also, Claire and Peggy of Holy Redeemer, and N.P. Chris.
