Richard (Dick) Didas, 89, of New Smyrna Beach, passed away September 25, 2019, just weeks shy of his 90th birthday. He was born to the late Harrison and Irene Didas in Cohocton, New York.
Dick met his late wife, Betsy, in Rochester, New York and they married in August of 1956. They had two boys, David and Jim, and moved from New York, to Oklahoma and finally, to Florida while Dick pursued a challenging and successful career with Stromberg Carlson. Dick and Betsy celebrated 56 wonderful years of marriage before she passed away in May of 2012.
Dick was a beloved son, brother, husband, father and grandfather who had a passion for his family, friends and his community. He was a member of the New Smyrna Beach Men’s Golf Club, past President of the Indian River Community Concert Association, former Treasurer of Grace Community Church and an active member of the Fairgreen Homeowner’s Association.
The family takes comfort that he is once again with his treasured wife whom he missed tremendously.
