Richard Viron Riddle, 75, of Allen, Texas passed away peacefully at his home on April 23rd, 2017, a victim of cancer. Throughout his life, “Dick” was a loving son, brother, husband, father, father-in-law, uncle, grandfather and neighbor, and a true friend to many. Preceded in death by his wife Karen, brother Bill, and parents William and Grace, Dick is now survived by his son Russ, daughter-in-law Mea, grandchildren Evan and Emily, his niece and nephew Leslie and Scott, and countless friends and colleagues. While Dick had experience in a wide range of vocations, he spent most of his working years as a private investigator. He was highly skilled at following a trail of leads, be it headed for rural Texas, scenic Switzerland, or somewhere in between. In the last several years of his life, Dick acquired both a love of, and a talent for, writing poetry, and enjoyed sharing his writing with others. Above all else, however, he was a committed and doting grandparent, and enjoyed bringing anyone and everyone up to date about what/how each grandchild was doing. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. A memorial service will be held on May 20th, 11:00am, at the First Baptist Church of Allen,
Building E, rooms 102/104, located on the southeast corner of the property. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the SPCA, The Film Foundation, or The American Cancer Society.

  1. Mr. Riddle was a kind hearted soul of a man. I called him papa at Geico. You could always expect a firm hand shake or a gentle hug from Mr. Riddle. He didn’t want me to him Mr. Riddle but instead Richard. He was highly respected at our Geico post and when we noticed that his health a big concern, I would always joke with him and say, don’t you die up here at Geico and we would laugh yet we were concerned about his health. Mr. Riddle played a big part in the security detail at Geico. He took great pride in his work and one of his duties was to vehicle patrol. He worked overnight which is hard for anybody and if we noticed that he dosed off for a spell nobody bothered him because we knew he was either tired or not feeling well. He would come to work sick but refused to go back home. He will be missed tremendously and now he is God and family that preceded him. Mr. Riddle, a man of character, grace and wisdom.
