Richard ‘Dick’ Fearnow


April 22, 1944 - March 19, 2012

Richard “Dick” Fearnow, 67, Kewanna, “Fletcher’s Lake,” a winter resident of Clearwater, Fla., after fighting a short battle with cancer with a vengeance, now a resident of his Heavenly home, died at 4:50 p.m. Monday, March 19, 2012, at Morton Plant Hospital, Clearwater, Fla. He was born April 22, 1944, in Kokomo, the son of Maurice and Vivian I. (Benton) Fearnow. On Feb. 22, 1964, at Beamer United Methodist Church, Kokomo, he married Nashalla “Shalla” Fowler-Fearnow, who survives.

Dick was a 1962 graduate of Clinton Central High School and served his pipefitter apprenticeship from 1971-1975. He was a pipefitter at Chrysler Transmission Plant, retiring Jan. 31, 2004, after 41 years of service. He was a member of the UAW Local 685, where he served as trustee for many years, Eagles Lodge, Masonic Lodge #389, Grass Creek Lions Club, and, all the family can’t forget, a member of Sam’s Club.

Dick loved and cherished time spent with family. His children and grandchildren were a blessing to him. He loved his lake home, fishing and mowing the yard. He never knew a stranger, and was always ready to capture special moments of his loved ones with the ever- ready camera. He enjoyed being a snowbird and spending time at the beach, sporting his ever-famous yellow tank top. He was the park champ at shuffleboard and was an all-around genuine good guy, dedicated and always hard working.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by three sons, Richard Kent (Karen) Fearnow, Darrin (Melissa) Fearnow, and David (Angie) Fearnow, all of Kokomo; one daughter, Melissa Fearnow-Neher (Steve Garrett) of Seminole, Fla.; grandchildren, Austin, Ryley, Matthew, Sarah, Zoe, Lauren, Morgan, Sharese, Drew, Daniel, Lindsie, Heather, Holly, Krystal, and John; nine great-grandchildren; three sisters, Kathleen Keller, Patricia (Bill) Souders, Betty (Leonard) Reed, all of Frankfort; brother-in-law, Michael (Barbara) Fowler of Terre Haute; two aunts, Lucille (Rick) Reed, Wilma McQuinn; and several very special nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Monday at Stout and Son Funeral Home, Russiaville Chapel, 200 E. Main St., Russiaville, with the Rev. Ruth Lawson officiating. Burial will follow in Crown Point Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
