Richard "Dick" J. Aide, 77, 1050 Westwood St., Bismarck, died peacefully May 18, 2002, at his home surrounded by his loving family. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at First Presbyterian Church, Bismarck, with the Revs. Jake Kincaid and Mary Porter officiating. Burial will be in North Dakota Veterans Cemetery, south of Mandan.

Dick was born April 30, 1925, in Dallas, S.D. He was the son of George and Doris (Orendorff) Aide. He was raised and educated in Bismarck, where he graduated from Bismarck High School and Bismarck Junior College. Dick enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Force and served in the Pacific during World War II from 1944 to 1946. Dick married Betty Ann Kent on July 8, 1950, in the chapel of the First Presbyterian Church in Bismarck. They resided together in Bismarck for 51 years.

He was in real estate for 40 years with T. Clem Casey Real Estate, part owner of Robert James Real Estate, Sales Manager of Dakota Real Estate and owner of Aide & Associates. He founded Lake Aid Systems doing business as LAS International, where he was president until his death.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, fly tying, gardening, sports and especially enjoyed watching his grandchildren take part in their sporting events. He and Betty spent many happy summers at their cabin on Crooked Lake. Dick was a member of the First Presbyterian Church and a life member of Elks Lodge No. 1199. His afternoon coffee friends and Elks snooker buddies were important to him.

Dick is survived by his wife, Betty, Bismarck; his three sons and two daughters-in-law, Mike and Bonnie and their three sons, Jack, Sam and Will, all of Bismarck, Mark and Denise and their children, Katie, Kelsey, Abbey and Harrison, all of Bottineau, and Lee, Minneapolis; and one niece, Nancy (Benrud) Bartlett, Sartell, Minn.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and one sister, Jeanne Aide Benrud.

In lieu of flowers, the family prefers memorials to St. Alexius Hospice or the First Presbyterian Church Child Care Center.
