March 12, 1931 – Jan. 13, 2014
Richard (Dick) Larimore passed away on Jan. 13, 2014, after a short illness. He joins his beloved wife Mary Jean, who preceded him in death 9½ months ago. Dick was born in Barberton, Ohio, on March 12, 1931, to Mary Alma Davis and Martin Aaron Larimore. He moved to California at the age of 4 to be part of the entertainment industry. Dick was an accomplished tap dancer, singer and actor appearing in two movies with the likes of Bing Crosby. In his youth, Dick lettered in baseball, won a snare drum competition and had a passion for cars.
A trip to the local drug store by Mary Jean as a teenager, where Dick worked as a soda jerk, led to 60 years of marriage and four children. Dick was a small business owner of video stores in Davis and Woodland. His family has many memories of him playing recreational softball with his adult children where he was one of a few pitchers who could curve a slow-pitched softball.

After retiring from the video stores, he went to work at Atria Covell Gardens where he made many friends whom he stayed in contact with until his passing. The last few years of his life were spent taking care of his wife, spending time with his family, reading and walking his dog Bijou.
Dick is survived by his children, Kathy, Richard and Brian (Lisa); and five grandchildren, Richard (Carrie), Steven (Evon) Cindy, Sean and Caitlin. He was preceded in death by his wife Mary Jean, his daughter Jeannie, son-in-law John Willhoff and brother Harold.
