In Loving Memory Of Richard Dennis Heard

Nov. 3, 1925 - Aug. 31, 2017 

With a big smile on his face, our loving dad, Richard Dennis Heard, was welcomed home by our Lord Jesus Christ on August 31, 2017. Waiting on him was our mother Joan, his wife of 49 years; his  parents,  Deck  and Annie; son, Richard; brother, Coye; sister,  June;  and  second  wife, Merle. Born in Olney TX on November 3, 1925, his family moved to Spade, TX in 1929. He graduated from Spade High School and proudly served our nation over-seas during WWII in the Navy. He attended Texas Tech, Decatur Baptist College, and Howard Payne College. He lovingly served as a pastor in Texas at Rocky Ford, Maple, Kelton, Lamesa, and Olton. Left behind until we join him are his children: Mike of The Woodlands TX, Linda and JL Lemons of Vicksburg MS, Jan and Monte Toombs of Waco TX, Patti/Ken Jacobs of Clearwater FL; as well as 8 grandchildren, J and Mandy Lemons, Doug and Karen Lemons, Sally  and  Darrell  Heugatter, Christi Hamilton, Ben and Desiree Toombs, Brian and Amanda Heard, Sam and Aretha Jacobs, and Zachary Jacobs; 17 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. Dad prayed daily for his family. He loved Jesus and to tell others about Him and the great love of the Father.
