HARLOCK, Richard W., Jr.
HARLOCK - Richard W., Jr. On January 23, 2019, Richard W. Harlock, Jr. passed away at the age of 86. Preceded in death by his wife Midge/Joan (MacVittie), he is survived by his children Richard (Jenny) Harlock, Roderick (Carole) Harlock and Russell (Sarah) Harlock; grandchildren Tim (Kate), Roderick (Cassandra), Adam, Katie, Kurt, Kristian, Rhett, Blake, Khan, Yshe; and great-grandchildren Logan, Elliott, Parker and Lilly. Most people knew him as Dick, but you may have known him by other names, including "The Chief", "Dickie Bird" or "T-Rex". Regardless of what name you knew him by, you undoubtedly have stories about him! Some of those stories may have involved hi-jinx at Kensington High School, boxing while serving his country in the United States Navy during the Korean War, hunting grouse and deer in the woods of Western NY, or flying airplanes and fishing in the bush surrounding Gogama, Ontario. As the owner and operator of Gogama Lodge and Derry Air, Dick and his family were responsible for many memorable vacations for thousands of people over his 48 years in business. A Memorial Service and luncheon will be held February 16, 2019, at 11:00 AM, at the Columns Banquets, 2221 Transit Rd., Elma, NY 14059. Flowers are gratefully declined.
