Dick Disney, 87, passed away at the home of his daughter, Susan, and son-in-law Darryl Stolley on April 18, 2018.

Dick was born in Missoula, Mont., on July 6, 1930, and was the youngest child of Theresa (Scarry) and Frank ‘Pinky’ Disney.

Following Dick’s military service the couple returned to Anaconda. The couple adopted three children, Rick, Susan, and Michael.

By 1966 the family settled in Helena, Mont. Dick worked as the first director for the Montana State Department of Consumer Affairs and later directed the Montana AAA Roadside and Emergency Department as well as Hotel Inspections.
