Richard "Dick" Moren, age 87, started his eternal life in heaven on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021. Dick was born on August 15, 1933 in Wellsburg, West Virginia and was preceded in death by his wife, Evelyn Moren, and his parents, George and Ethel Moren. He is a 1951 graduate of Wellsburg High School and attended both West Virginia University and the University of Akron. As a Korean War era veteran, he served in the U.S. Army from 1955 to 1957, based in the U.S. and Japan.
He married Evelyn on June 1, 1957 and was able to enjoy 62 beautiful years of marriage with her. In 1963 they moved to Akron with their three children so Dick could pursue job opportunities at Goodyear. Dick held several positions over his 28 year career there with his most recent position being International Plant Contact where he dealt with numerous manufacturing plants overseas.
Dick was a long-time member at The Chapel where he volunteered in many ministries including visitation, baptism support, supplying food for the needy as well as serving as a deacon for many years. He was recently honored with the designation of lifetime deacon. Dick was an excellent role model to his entire family and guided them spiritually through encouragement in their faith to the Lord, whether that was gifting a Bible or devotional, sending the grandchildren to Camp Carl or inviting family to church services or the annual Chapel Christmas concert. More importantly, he taught us by example, in the way he lived his daily life. Dick's favorite Bible verses were 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 and James 2:14-19.
Dick enjoyed hiking, boating, golfing and spending time at the beach. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, Christian and friend to many. He always tried to help others through his service or with his gentle, kind words. He also had an amazing sense of humor that brought many smiles and laughs, even in difficult times. He will be missed dearly by countless friends and family.
He is survived by his three children, Chuck Moren, Lindy (Kevin) Conley, Tammy (Danny) Whittaker; six grandsons, Jimmy (Katie) Moren, Michael Moren, Ryan Whittaker, Chad (Nicole) Whittaker, Jason Conley and Mitchell Conley; one great grandson, Charlie Moren, and one great granddaughter, Evelyn Moren.
