Richard A. “Dick” McCoy, 79, of New Philadelphia, passed away Monday, June 27, 2022 in his home while surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Massillon, he was the son of the late Robert A. and Betty M. (Pittis) McCoy and a 1960 graduate of the former Dennison High School at Dennison. Dick was an honorably discharged veteran having served with the United States Air Force during Vietnam and had retired from Howden-Buffalo Manufacturing at New Philadelphia where he worked as a Quality Control Supervisor.

A man of faith, Dick was an active member of the Church of Christ at New Philadelphia and enjoyed watching all types of sports. Most of all, he loved watching and supporting his grandchildren in their sporting activities and their other various endeavors.

On August 1, 1964, Dick married his wife, Sandra E. “Sandy” (Franks) McCoy and together they shared over 57 years of marriage before his passing. Also surviving are his three daughters, Tennie R.

He is also survived by his brother, Thomas (Pat) Wells of Dover.

In addition to his parents, a brother Russell McCoy, also preceded him in death.

Visitation will be Friday, July 1, 2022 from 4 to 6 PM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home at New Philadelphia.

I always enjoyed conversations with Dick. He was definitely proud of everyone in his family. You could see the pride in him when he spoke about his children and grandchildren and their accomplishments. I enjoyed his company and loved talking with him. He was a family man, and a very kind soul. Prayers to your family. Bob Von Kaenel

I enjoyed when Dick taught Bible class. He was a kind man. He will missed by many.

I always enjoyed Uncle Dick’s sense of humor and that smile! I will have to agree with my sister though, during our dad’s surgery he was absolutely selfless! I don’t think we’ll ever forget that. I always enjoyed when the families would get together and Dick never missed a chance to goof me! My prayers are with you all! But after watching the video it looks like you’re blessed with wonderful memories.

I have nothing, but great memories of Dick. I remember the times that he went fishing every Tuesday night with me, my dad Dewey, and my Grandpa Dewey. He was such a great support as I played sports in High School. I could always hear him and my dad rooting me on from the stands. What an amazing guy that left an impact on my life. He will be missed.

So sorry for your loss. Dick was a GREAT friend during the time he worked for my dad at Buckeye Franklin and going to my son Chris's basket games and track meets . That was a good time !!!

Uncle Dick always gave the best advice. And he gave it with love and compassion. When my Dad had his heart surgery, I will never forget how Dick sat with us at the hospital and supported each and every one of us kids. He always made himself available. He was kind and selfless. I pray for your comfort Aunt Sandy, Tennie, Tammy, & Tracie and your families. You are very much in our thoughts. Love Always
