Dick Chilcott

Dick Chilcott of Coronado and Greeley, Colorado, peacefully closed his eyes for the last time on March 21, 2020.

Dick was born June 25, 1935. One of five children, he is the son of Edward R Chilcott Sr. and Doris Carver Chilcott of Pasadena, California. He graduated high school from The Lawrenceville School of Princeton, NJ in 1954 and Occidental College of Los Angeles in 1958 and was a proud member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

After graduation, Dick served four years as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy on the USS Pyro until 1963. A year earlier, he had met Sally Bussselle, a school teacher in Coronado, daughter of Arthur and Elmira Busselle. Dick and Sally married in 1963 and moved to Greeley, Colorado where Dick became a small business owner of Woody’s Cigar Store and Woody’s Pet Supplies before moving into real estate investment and property management. He and Sally raised their children Mark and Skip and remained in Greeley for 17 years before until moving back to Coronado in 1987.

Dick and Sally’s passion was yachting, traveling the world, and socializing with friends. They were active members the Coronado Yacht Club and the Catalina Yacht Club. Dick and Sally were married for 47 years until her death in 2010.

Dick is survived by his two sons Skip of Redmond, Washington and Mark of Fairfield, California; three grandchildren; two great grandchildren; and his sister Liz Hezlup of San Moreno, California.

A celebration of life will be scheduled at a future date at the Coronado Yacht Club in Coronado when circumstances will allow, due to the Corona Virus pandemic.

Dick will never be forgotten by many.
