Obituary for Albert Richard “Dick” Buxton

Peoria- Albert Richard “Dick” Buxton, age 75, of Peoria, passed away peacefully at 10:10 AM on Monday, November 16, 2020 at his home with his family by his side.

Born May 26, 1945 in Peoria, he was a son to Glenn B. and Mary Irene (Webster) Buxton. Dick graduated from Woodruff High School and went on to work for Caterpillar for 40 years until his retirement in 2003. On April 10, 1965 he married Susan Willis and together they cherished 55 years. Dick was an avid bowler in his early years having been a part of various leagues with his wife. He loved fishing, boating on the Illinois River, and in his later years could always be found on the golf course. When his daughters were young, he coached their travel softball team, and when his grandsons were born, he could always be found spending time with them. Dick truly enjoyed the company of his four-legged companions Mollee and Jones, but most importantly he was a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother who cherished his family, was deeply loved and will be dearly missed.

Survivors include his wife Sue of Peoria; two daughters Cynthia (John) Ellington of Chillicothe and Jennifer Davidson of Plainfield; two grandsons: Stephen Lindell and Seth Davidson both of Plainfield; one brother Glenn Buxton of Bartonville and one sister Donna Megyesi of Washington, IL; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Dick was preceded in death by his parents and one son-in-law Rob Davidson.

Cremation rights have been accorded per his wishes.

Memorials in Dick’s memory may be made to St. Jude Midwest Affiliate.
