Richard “Dick” Hassell went to be with our Lord Jesus Christ June 10, 2018.

Dick was born in Sharon, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 12, 1935. He moved to Arizona in 1958, and he loved it here.

Dick and Mary married in 1964. Dick had three children; Kim Preston of Georgia, Wesley (Wendy) Hassell of Kingman, Connie (Phil) Pope of Oregon, five grandkids; Darla Garcia, Chelsea Bennett, Trooper Cody Pope, Wesley G. Hassell and Colton Hassell, seven great-grandkids; he loved his “Bennett Bunch Babies.”

Dick Hassell proudly served America in the U.S. Army, stationed in Germany. He worked in construction for Yell Concrete for 19 years. He loved camping, hunting, fishing and being with his family. He loved to travel; we saw all 50 states and at least eight other countries. His last trip was to the Oregon Coast to surprise his daughter, Connie, for her birthday.

He’s proceeded in death by his mom, dad, two brothers, one sister and so many others. He loved the Lord and was a great gift to all who knew him and loved him. We’ll all miss you so much. Go fishing with Hubert, Joe Heil, Joe Gatineau, along with your dad and brothers. Thank you all for your love, support and prayers.

Public services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 16, 2018 at Sutton Memorial Funeral Home with an 11:30 a.m. graveside service at Mountain View Cemetery.

A lunch will follow at Mary’s, which starts between 12:30 and 1 p.m. All are welcome.
