RICHARD GALLIVAN Richard "Dick" Gallivan, 86, passed away October 9, 2019 at Summerlin Hospital. Dick was born in Buffalo, N.Y., October 12, 1932, the only child of Richard and Rose Gallivan.

In 1992, he moved to Las Vegas to spend his golden years playing golf and video poker. After a short while of living in Las Vegas, he found his true love. In 1994, he met the love of his life, Brenda. They married in 1997 and enjoyed 22 wonderful years together. His son Richard "Ricky" Gallivan III, preceded him in death in 2015. Richard is survived by his loving wife, Brenda Gallivan; and his step-son, Jason Hall. A special thanks to the staff at Summerlin Hospital for being their caring and compassionate care during this difficult time.
