Richard Nixon

August 1, 1955 — October 6, 2022

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.
