He was born June 23, 1932, in Winona to Allan and Margaret (Brose) Osborne and graduated from Winona High in 1951.

On September 12, 1954 Dick married his high school sweetheart, Pattie Ann Olmstead. Dick and Pattie made their home in Winona and had three daughters. Cathie, born in 1956, was sickly from birth, became the first diagnosed case of cystic fibrosis in Winona at age three and died at age five.

After graduation, Dick went on to serve in the U.S. Air Force from 1951 to 1955 where he was a vehicle mechanic. He joined the Winona Fire Department and served the city of Winona for 38 years. Dick retired as captain of the Winona Fire Department. For many years Dick also worked part time for Hauser Art Glass Company. Dick was a frequent volunteer at Winona Health and the local food shelf.

After retirement Dick enjoyed breakfast with the fireman, fishing in the lake and river, riding his scooter around town and spending time with family. In 2016 Dick moved to Kansas to live with his daughter Tami and family.

Dick is survived by daughters, Tami (Klaire) Keller, of Abilene, Kan., and Terri (Baird) Johnson of Eden Prairie, Minn.; five grandchildren, Kelsey (Chad) Briand, Charlie Keller and Rachelle, Charlotte, and Nicolette Johnson; a great granddaughter, Kynsley Briand.
