Richard E. “Dick” Wasson

SUN CITY, Ariz. - Richard E. “Dick” Wasson passed away peacefully in Sun City, Ariz. in August 2015. He was 73 years old.


Dick is survived by his son Charley Wasson of Fair Oaks Ranch, TX, Charley’s wife Alisa, and his granddaughters Evelyn and Elizabeth. His brother Larry preceded him in death and so did his parents, Bill and Evelyn Wasson, who were longtime residents of Garden City.


Dick was born in Bakersfield, CA and graduated from Garden City High in 1959. He then went to Garden City Junior College, and Fort Hays State. In his later years he moved to Sun City AZ to be closer to his aging parents.


He enjoyed a long career in sales, working as a manufacturer’s rep for several appliance companies. Dick’s gift of gab and ability to joke around with his customers made him popular with the owners of appliance stores through the Midwest.


You are invited to an informal memorial to celebrate Dick at Valley View Cemetery on Saturday June 20, at 10 a.m.
