Dick Bolley, 91

Richard D. Bolley, age 91, of Sturgis, went to be with his Lord and Savior Thursday morning, May 10, 2018, at his home, while surrounded by his loving family.

He was an active faithful member of Sturgis Foresquare His House Church.
Dick enjoyed working in his yard, his pets and feeding the birds. He was an avid sports fan and a true fan of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Dick had hobbies and involvements, but what he truly loved and what made him happiest in life was time spent with his family especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
