Richard J. Scuglik
1949 - 2012


Richard J. Scuglik, 62, of Deerbrook, Wis., died on June 14, 2012, at the Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

He was born on Sept. 17, 1949, in Kenosha, Wis., to Joseph and Bernice (Burdick) Scuglik. Dick attended schools in Kenosha, graduating from St. Joseph High School in 1967. He then received his undergraduate degree from the UW-Whitewater. He continued his schooling at the UW-Stevens Point where he received a Masters degree in communications. He and his family moved to Rhinelander in 1987 where Dick was employed by Nicolet College. He taught computer programming and more recently home technology. He was always busy.

Besides his teaching, he was involved in other business ventures through the years that he had started. When he wasn't working, he enjoyed all the northwoods had to offer, especially golf and fishing.

In earlier years he was an avid motorcyclist who enjoyed many cross country trips with friends. He was a past member of the Rhinelander Lion's Club and he was not afraid to try new things, hence the painting and recent wine making.

He married Kimberley Schey on June 26, 2004.

Dick is survived by his wife, Kimberley of Deerbrook; his son, Jason of Milwaukee, Wis.; his father, Joseph of Kenosha; his sister, Joyce (Kelly) Infusino of Kenosha; two brothers, James (Betsy) of Kenosha and Edward (Deborah) of Neenah, Wis.; nieces, nephews and many friends. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Andrea and his mother, Bernice.

Visitation for Dick will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. with funeral services following at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20, 2012, all at the Carlson Funeral Home.

The Reverend Kari Vadis will officiate. Cancer research was a passion of Dick's and a memorial is being established for that purpose. Any memorials may be directed to his family.
