Richard "Dick" Allen Bartlow
Dick is the son of Grace Dierdorf and Paul Munier. He was born July 28, 1937 and was a resident of Indianapolis. He was married to Norma Jean Halliburton, the love of his life.

He has a special sister in-law Linda Halliburton and special nephew Jeff McCoy (Kim) parents of Amanda and Natasha Moore (Don). He had a very special bond with his Dierdorf, Paulus and Schepper families who were like brothers and sisters to him.

At age 62 Dick retired from Rolls-Royce as a Plant Layout Engineer. He was a graduate of Ben Davis High School, attended Rose Poly Technical Institute and a graduate of Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (heavy on the Purdue side). Dick was a veteran of the United States Army. He was an honorary member of the Joan Hunt Club. Some of his passions were fishing, hunting, gardening, travelling, food, photography, writing and scrapbooking, but most importantly spending time with his family and friends.

Dick was selfless and a wonderful provider. He embraced every moment by living life fully. Through his Christian actions he was a moral compass to everyone he encountered.
