Richard "Dick" Spargo
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 19, 1927
Death: Sep. 22, 1986

I don't really know much about Uncle Dick's early life. I know he attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. During his first year at college, my dear uncle became mentally ill. The rest of his life was spent in and out of mental hospitals.

I have very fond memories of Uncle Dick. He got me interested in stamp and coin collecting at an early age and took me to several coin shows. He would spend many hours with me showing me his collection of coins and stamps.

I still have the coins and stamps Uncle Dick gave me to start my collection.

He was always kind and generous to me and I have many cherished memories of the times we spent together when I was a little boy, and then again as a young man.

At Uncle Dick's funeral, his brother, Robert,(my Uncle Bob) said, "We will never know how much he (Dick) suffered", referring to Uncle Dick's illness.

I have the American flag that covered his casket. I fly it often, mostly as a patriotic gesture, but whenever I do, I stop and remember my Uncle Dick.
