Obituary Condolences

DICK ENGSTRAND "Dick Engstrand," to all who knew and loved him, was born Richard Oscar Engstrand, 80, to Alice Randolph (Paquin) Engstrand of Canada, June 24, 1932, in Brockton, Mass. He passed away peacefully Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, in Las Vegas. He is survived by his devoted wife, Pauline; his two loving sons, Alfred and Richard Jr.; and granddaughter, Julene. Dick resided in numerous places, starting in his native Boston suburbs including Miami, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Antonio, and finally retiring in Las Vegas. He was a talented cook working as a chef at fine dining restaurants throughout the country, and known as a fierce competitor who had a passion for his favorite game, billiards, later owning several pool halls during his working days in San Antonio. The family wishes to extend their utmost gratitude to all his wonderful nieces in Las Vegas that brought joy, well wishes and support for both he and his wife while he was receiving his medical care. We also want to thank the caring doctors and nurses of Desert Springs Hospital, the entire staff of Atria Sutton, and finally everyone at Odyssey Hospice for their compassion and professionalism during dad's final days. It's been said that a man's true wealth is not measured by ones' assets but by the love and respect that he receives from his family and friends. And if that's true he died a very rich person. "Godspeed Dad. You are loved and will be truly missed." A gathering of friends and family will be from noon-2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1, followed by chapel services, both at Harrell Funeral Home, 4435 Frontier Trail, Austin, Texas. Graveside services will follow at 3:30 p.m., at Memory Lawn Memorial Park, Martindale, Texas. For those unable to attend the services, you may sign the guestbook www.harrellfuneralhomes.com
