Dick lived a life full of love and adventure. He was a loving father, loyal brother and true friend.  Dick was born on April 30,1932 in Dunmore, PA, the third son of Vincent and Catherine Coolican Sheehan.  He graduated from Dunmore High School in 1950.  He served in the US Navy, stationed in the Mediterranean Sea during the Korean Conflict, and then earned his associate degree from the University of Scranton.  Dick worked at the Art Print Company for forty-four years, first as an accountant and later as a salesman.  As salesman, he drove back and forth between Scranton to New York City almost every day. 

Dick met his wife Anna while on the bus on the way to square dancing.  They continued this pastime well into their marriage.  He was an avid golfer and bowler.  He bowled with St. Anthony’s Bowling League and then the Providence Bowling League.  After retiring, he played golf five days a week at the Homestead Golf Course, hitting a hole in one on July 24, 2005.
