Richard "Dickey" Collins Lauth Obituary

Richard “Dickey” Collins Lauth, age 63, of Ross Twp., passed away on Saturday, July 6, 2024 at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh after a sudden brain trauma. He was reunited in heaven into the loving arms of his late father, Bernard E. Lauth, Jr. He is survived by his mother, Shirley E. Lauth; his sister, Debbie Sue “NaNa” Lauth Croyle; his nieces, Lauren (Jacob) Wurman and Kimberly Croyle; his nephew, Brandon Croyle; his great-nephews, Sawyer and Cooper Wurman; his cousin Gretchen (Jim) Moran, and many other cousins.


Even though he was born with many physical and mental challenges, he conquered them all. Dickey made many friends throughout his life and even came in contact with some notables such as Liberace, Milton Berel and Pavarotti, whom he met when his dad took him to work with him at Heinz Hall where he had worked as a technical supervisor with IATSE Local #3. Dickey was an avid swimmer and loved playing his piano and many other of his musical instruments. He also spent many hours listening to recorded music. You could say music was his favorite pastime.


In his childhood Dickey resided with his family and as an adult moved into a community residence with two other housemates.

Dickey will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his family and friends.


Friends will be received for visitation on Wednesday, July 10, 2024 from 1-3 P.M. and 5-7 P.M. with a service to follow at 7 P.M. at Boylan Funeral Homes, Inc. 324 E. Grandview Ave., Zelienople, PA 16063, with Pastor Reid Moon as Celebrant.

The family welcomes friends to attend a Celebration of Life on Thursday, July 11, 2024 from 1-4 P.M. at the Hartmann’s Waterhole Restaurant, 169 Hartmann Rd., Harmony, PA 16037.


In lieu of flowers the family suggests that contributions can be made in honor of Richard Collins Lauth’s name to Achieva, online at https://www.achieva.info/.
