Richard Scott Nixon, 67, passed away unexpectedly Thursday October 6, 2022.
He is survived by Tami, his loving wife of over 30 years, his quirky son Scott, and anxiety-ridden dog, Sparky. He'll be missed by his 5 siblings, Barbara (Chris) Rice, John (Debbie) Nixon , Joann (Phil) Bertemes, Ken (Mary) Nixon, Jim (Linda) Nixon and many nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by his father Lawrence and mother Elsie.
Richard was a fantastic husband and father. The type of guy who went out of his way to help a friend in need. Recently retired from Cleveland Clinic, Richard "the fix-it man" was a lover of fine bourbon, cigars and Cleveland sports. He enjoyed traveling, going to sporting events with Scott and spending time with family and friends. He always had the best one-liners and could make anyone smile.
