Dick was born on January 23,1944 to Constant and Simone (Belisle) St Gelais in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
Dick’s biggest delight in life after the birth of his 3 children was when he moved to Casper, Wyoming with his wife Debra in 1995. He loved and respected the beauty and wide open spaces that Wyoming offers. He felt very fortunate to have been able to endure so many enjoyable and happy hunting trips in the state of Maine, Canada, and especially Wyoming. He had great memories hunting with his son, grandsons, special friend Jim "Doc" Hoag and all of his Rhode Island hunting buddies who came to Wyoming for many, many years of hunting seasons.
Dick was employed for 26 years with the fire department in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. During his employment he made many good friends and held many funny, happy, goofy, and sad memories.
He is preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Roland St Gelais.
He is survived by his wife of 38 years Debra; sons, Thomas and Glenn; and daughter, Monique; 6 grandsons, Zack; Drew; Hunter; James; Alex; and Landon; 7 great grandchildren; 3 siblings, Roger (Terry) St Gelais of Collinsville, Connecticut; Jackie (Joe) Laporte of Rotonda, Florida; and Vivian Dubois of Harrisville, Rhode Island; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
