Richard Francis Behrendt 1934-1983

Richard "Dick" Behrendt was born to George and Ida Behrendt in Chicago, Illinois. He was one of four children born to George and Ida. His siblings included: brothers, George Jr. and Bob, and one sister, Lorraine.
He married Grace Corbin in 1958, and together they completed rearing up Danny, Janice, and Phyllis.
Dick was a teacher in the public school system at the time of their marriage. With the help a good wife brings a man, Grace supported Dick, while he furthered his education, trying to better himself, and his family.
He started with the government as a counselor for the Job Corp, in the mid 1960's, and before his death had worked up to the position of Head of OEO (Office of Economic Opportunity) over 4 states, one being Colorado, where he and Grace settled.
His death came at a young age due to a terrible accident on one of the mountain roads in Colorado.
He is loved and missed by his family.
Rest in Peace Dad.
