Richard "Dick" J. Prevost, 71 of Kettle River, passed away April 23, 2013 with his family by his side, after losing his 12 year battle to prostate cancer.
Dick was born to Richard Joseph and Evelyn (Ward) Prevost Sr. on April 10, 1942 in Cloquet.
He was a 1960 graduate of Cloquet High School and a longtime employee of Diamond Tool & Horseshoe Company in Duluth. He also worked for and retired from Edina Realty. Dick was an avid reader, painter, Catholic Church choir member, "garage saler" and gardener. He loved to hunt, fish, tell jokes and stories. "How big did you say those deer and fish were?" Though he had all girls, everything he was passionate about, has been passed down through the generations.
Our Dad was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be greatly missed by his family and lifelong friends, whom he always put first and loved dearly. The memory of our dad will be treasured forever.
Dick was preceded in death by his parents; and stepfather, Adrian Ethier.
He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Dorothy; five daughters, Sue (Ben) Anderson, Mary (Wally) Hakala, Patty Prevost, Debby (Dale) Kamunen, and Becky Abrahamson (Charles Cox); many grandchildren; great-grandchildren; a special friend of the family, Deb Tillman; sister Harriet (Rick) Mendenhall; brother, Tom (Jan) Prevost; and numerous relatives and friends.
The family would like to thank the staff of the north wing at Augustana Care in Moose Lake and Dick's hospice nurse, Katie Finifrock.
