Dick was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin on July 31, 1935, to John Smith Mohr and Stella (Ortyl) Mohr. Dick loved hunting and fishing with his dad. He was an avid athlete in high school and continued to play and enjoy sports, especially tennis and racketball, throughout his life. He graduated from Marquette University with a Mechanical Engineering degree and then earned a Masters of Business from Stanford University.

Dick and Mary Ann met in San Francisco and married in 1964. They moved to Kirkland, Washington in 1970, where Dick worked as a commercial real estate agent and together they raised three children and enjoyed 5 grandchildren.

Dick lived his life with integrity and joy. He loved animals, especially dogs. He coached his children’s sports teams, was an active member of his church and community, and was a loyal friend. He enjoyed traveling, made friends easily, and loved nothing more than spending time with his family.

In his later years, Dick enjoyed investing in the stock market, reading, family dinners and quiet evenings sitting by the fireplace. Despite his failing health, his perseverance, kindness, and humor was inspiring to many. He was respected and loved by nurses, therapists, caregivers and doctors. He appreciated simple pleasures in life and frequently expressed gratitude. His resilience, generosity, loving playfulness and positive outlook will be missed by all who knew him.
