Peter J. Dick

February 20, 2016

MISSION — Peter J. Dick, 88, passed away on Tuesday, February 16, 2016, at his residence in Mission. Born in Ontario, Canada, Peter Dick moved his family to McAllen, Texas in 1956.

He was always a steadfast and selfless servant to God and community, always seizing any opportunity to lend a helping hand. The family of Peter J. Dick would like to extend their deepest gratitude to family, friends and community for their kindness, presence, love and support shown to him during his time on this Earth.
He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Helen Dick; daughter Carol Ralston Stokes; grandchildren Peter (Janete) Ralston, Jacob (Carolyn) Ralston, Michael (Carmen) Stokes, Kathryn Ralston and 6 great grandchildren.

    Helen, I’m really sorry that I didn’t get to see you and Peter in 2015. Kept thinking about driving over to see you, but it didn’t happen. Helen you have my most sincere sympathies. I know that Peter is now in a better place. God’s Blessings to you and the family. Love, Helen

  2. Dennis Fearka

    Dear Helen,
    Dale called me and told me about Pete’s passing. I am so sorry for your loss. Just know that Pete is in God’s hands now and all is well. I always respected Pete and am grateful to have known him. I would always look forward to making the sales call to Dick Office Supply and when he would tell Dorothy to “order another gross of desk trays” from me. Pete was a great guy and will be missed!

  3. Amy Beamer (Robinson

    Dear Aunt Helen, Carol, Pete and family and Jacob and family, my heart goes out to you all today. Uncle Pete was full of spirit. I’ll never forget going to Pelee Island on that small plane with you guys and having an adventure. I think that was the first time you saw snow flakes! It was also great to see you all at the last reunion. My grandpa and Henry and Uncle Pete as well as Uncle John and Uncle Bill have the most spirit and wonderful strength. Our thoughts are with you all during this time. We have wonderful memories that keep us smiling inside! Love from Amy Beamer (Robinson), Jeff, Tom, Luke, Sam.
