March 27, 1933 — August 1, 2016

He was born March 27, 1933 in Washington, DC, a son of William C. and Marguerite Scheibli DeLacy. He attended Gonzaga Prep School and Georgetown University, in Washington, DC and proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. On November 14, 1959, he married Irene K.

He was an avid traveler and a life-long student of peoples and cultures.

Richard was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church in Hamilton.
Surviving are his wife, Irene; a daughter, Kathleen DeLacy of Earlville; a sister and brother-in-law, Elayne and John Coggins of Kensington, MD; two brothers and a sister-in-law, William P.
