Hi all,

my step-dad passed late saturday night. his name is Alexander "Scotty" Dick he was 85. please, say a prayer for him, my mom and all of us, her name is Olga Dick.

he will be in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, paper and cyber obits on Thur. 3/7. it is in the Busch obits today.

he will be buried by Busch Funeral Home

at The City of Cleveland, West Park Cemetery, 3942 Ridge Rd. Cleveland, OH 44114 216-348-7216, on Thurs. March 7th at 10:30 am. there's no wake or funeral, just an unceremonious burial, with immediate family, that's what he wanted.

interesting note: he was a Mason, we contacted the local branch and they said they'd do nothing, because he hadn't kept up his dues.

i'll miss him. he was a great father to me and my three sisters and the whole family, he was loved. Scottie and my Mom will have been married 42 years this June. my Mom will be 88 April, 21st. she's doing OK sorta, for now.

Scotty, as he preferred to be called, was born in a small town (Stephenson) outside of Glascow Scotland. he came to the U.S.A. in the fifties, worked as a machinist at a few places around Cleveland and then worked for the Ford Motor Co. as a cutter-grinder for 30+ years until his retirement. for the past 8 years he and my mom have been living at the Lutheran Home, a nursing home in Westlake, OH, nice place, my mom is still there.

love and prayers,
