Dear sweet Lacy...I wanted you to know Im thinking of you and your family as you now have lost your father. Losing a parent is the worst thing to ever happen. <3
Well Dickie, if anyone could convince God to change His mind, u could. But I honestly believe it all went just as God planned, as unbelieveable as it seems, things always work to the good for those that love Him. It's all about love, and there was none greater than how much u loved ur "mama". Once again u r together but u finally have what u always missed in ur life, "mama and daddy". I know u r having the time of ur life!!! Kick back now my friend, enjoy the TRUE Magic Carpet Ride that will never end...I love u, Dickie...we shall meet u at the Gate!!!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your dad. But it'sgood to know we well get to see them again someday. We love you. Inky and Ellouise
I am very sorry to hear about Dickie passing. Lacy it is so funny that our Daddy's were friends and we never knew until they both passed. I know that everytime I met him at my Dad's(Freddy Calloway) house he was a very nice man and very friendly and polite. May God's grace keep you strong while you cope with losing your Daddy. It isn't easy but never forget that he is always with you and as long as you speak of him and think of him regularly he will always remain in your heart!
Gos Bless You

Thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. He was loved and will be missed. May your memories bring you comfort. I love you, Lacy! Your dad was a good man!
I was saddened to hear about the loss of your daddy. I know it is hard on the ones who are left behind without their loved ones, as they have left this Earth.
How wonderful to know that this is not "It".....This is not the "last" time that you will see your daddy...This is not "goodbye".....He has just momentarily left this Earth, as we all will one day. This was not his home...this was just a place that he was passing through and the Lord allowed him to stay awhile and help play a huge part in creating you! We know where your daddy is and we know that he is with our Lord. In the blink of an eye, you will see him again. How joyous it is that the Lord allows us to know this. I am praying for you sweet friend and praying for everyone who has suffered a heart break from the loss of "Dickie"....May the Lord wrap his arms around you and your precious heart and may he comfort you on those days and moments that you just stop and feel like you are going to fall apart. Know that I am lifting you up...love you, Stephanie
Lacy is my cousin and I have known Dickie for quite a long time...He was a wonderful man who loved his family with all his heart...He was a character :) and will be missed so very much...To his beautiful daughter and my wonderful cousin, your daddy will be with you always, I luv you...
Prayers and love to you all...
Although I didn't know Dickie personally, He was the Father of my dear cousin, Lacy. I know he was very special to her, and he will be missed.
Lacy, I know no one will ever take his place, and you may feel like there is a void in your life, but God can fill that void with HIS love!! Turn to Him and let his grace and mercy carry you through the next chapter of your life. I promise, He will never leave you or forsake you. You will get to see your dad again, and that's the gift that comes with our faithfulness to Christ. I love you!!
Dickie, may you rest in peace.
We love you, Dickie...we will always love you..Debbie and Bonnie.
I met Mr. Arbuckle when his daughter, Lacy and I, became friends in elementary and we still are "besties" til' this day. Lacy spoke highly of her father and Mr. Arbuckle showed utter compassion to his daughter throughout her childhood and as she grew into a beautiful lady. My heart is with you and your family and I'll keep a good eye on Lacy, Mr. Arbuckle. Rest in peace.
Was very sorry to hear of his passing, I remember some good times that we had back in the day, My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and of course his daughter and grandson. Rest in Peace.
There are no words that can take away the sorrow you feel at the great loss of your Dad. Know that our hearts are with you always ...
I met Dickie in 1976 when I was working at John's Jeans. One day, he and his mother Wanda cam in the store. Anyone who knew Dickie knew what a flirt he was around women, always saying how pretty he was. Well, he came around the jeans store and kept asking me out, and one day I accepted and things went from there. He bacame my first true love.
We spent four years together, through the good and the bad, but the relationship eventually ended and I moved to Dallas - only to find out I was carrying his baby. So,I moved back; 8 months later I gave birth to our daughter, Lacy. I can remember how excited we both were.
Even though things didn't work out for us, and God sent us down different paths, we always remained close and in touch. Lacy was always able to visit and spend time with her Dad and grandma 'Nanny'.
Lacy grew up, married, had a beautiful child of her own, Noah, and 'PaPa Dickie' was really proud of this boy. They saw each other on a regular basis, until Dickie became too sick to leave the house.
I will always treasure the memories I had of him, I'll always remind his grandson of his Papa and I know Dickie's in a better place right now, looking down on us and smiling. RIP, my friend. Love, Debbie
Patty, you have my sympathy in the lost of your brother Dickie. May the good Lord keeps you in His Hands.
Arbuckle...who could ever forget Dickie Arbuckle??? I knew Dickie as "my brother" through my best friend, Bonnie. Some memories fade over the years, but some I will never forget, like the love between Dickie and Bonnie. I remember Dickie as one who no matter what he did, be it good, bad, or indifferent, it didn't matter...he did it 150%!! He lived his life to the fullest!! Some of my fondest memories was going fishing with Dickie and Bonnie at the Little Wichita River. Bonnie loved to catch them fish but she just couldn't bring herself to take them off the hook. In humor, if you knew the two of them together, they would argue over who would be taking that fish off the hook. You never knew who would win, but it was fun to watch those two...lol...Dickie was passionate about good food. He loved Bonnie's barbecue ribs, baked potato, and salad, with tea of course...i remember he loved tea. In saying that, I recall a funny story (today...lol)....Bonnie had stayed home from work one day to cook Dickie's favorite meal which was to be ready at 5:30pm. I was joining them for dinner and after finally having everything ready, by 6:00 Dickie had still not arrived...we waited, waited, and waited and Bonnie finally called Dickie's sweet mama and asked if she had heard from Dickie, and I can hear Wanda like it was yesterday, in her soft little apologetic voice, "Well honey, didn't you know??? Dickie and Lisa got married this afternoon." MAN!! I hated to see that great meal slammed in the trash!!! lol...I also remember how Dickie loved "home", a clean home and if you were his friend, his home was your home. He had to be around his buds though and he loved music, especially R&B. No one ever danced like Dickie Arbuckle, he definitely had a style of his own. Bonnie was always so proud when he would blow that harmonica. Dickie either was ever present, dressed in all black, dazzled with turqoise made by his own hands, and exotic skin boots, and if that didn't catch your eye, that flaming red hair of his did!!! Or....you might see him in a pair of overalls, ALWAYS with one strap down, driving that bright orange International!! Honestly, I used to tell Dickie he bought that thing because he thought it matched his hair really good!! He always had to "look good." You didn't have to ever tell him he looked good...Dickie would be the first to tell you how "prettty" he was!!! lol....Occassionally, well quite often, if Bonnie caught him doing something wrong, he would always get that mischevious smile of his on, he would draw those eyebrows together, and bug out those unforgettable eyes of his....this is when you knew you had either touched his funny bone or he thought you were crazy!!! One thing I best remember about Dickie is his undying love for his mother, Wanda. She was truly the love of his life. He dearly loved his family. I always remember going with Dickie and Bonnie to see his Granddad. He would always say, "I have the coolest Granddad in the world!!" In hearing of Dickie's passing, I told Bonnie....as the years passed, "I never saw you love like that again." Funny how life has it's turns but we must know who the driver is and I thank God that I was allowed to have these memories of Dickie. Life can be bitter/sweet and we sometimes stay on the broken road too long but I know Dickie is walking those streets of gold today, maybe fishing with his Daddy, Granddad, and Kirby or maybe just enjoying a perfect walk in perfect peace. We love you Dickie!! You will NEVER be forgotten!!!
Your light will forever burn in our hearts!! We will see you soon!!
Love always and forever!!
Bonnie aka "Red"
watch down on our Baby girl and Grandson!!
I remember being a small girl and you coming over all the time with little presents for us. You were always there for us (our famiy) at the drop of a hat, anything, anywhere, anytime. You were so giving and loving, and adored by us all..You were absolutely always the best uncle a girl could ever ask for. I will miss you more than you will ever know. I love you Uncle Dickie, always and forever.
Condolences from the Weeks family, Garland and Glynda.
Gone But Never Forgotten!!
I Love You Daddy!!
What Can I Say About My Daddy!!
Not only was he my Daddy, He was a Wonderful Man, He would give the shirt off his back, and a place to stay to any human being or animal.. He Loved his Momma (My Nane), did all he could for her, as for me I didnt get to spend alot of time with my dad when I was younger, but we made up for it as I grew , He had 1 grand child My son Noah, Whom he adored..
I was with him till his dieing breath and one thing I knew for sure was he loved his Family so.. And he knew it was his time to go.. He looked into my eyes till they couldnt open anymore, Hardest thing Ive ever had to do was tell him go to sleep now I'll see ya later!!!
I LOVE YOU DADDY!!!
Daddys Litle Girl
I met Dickie Arbuckle through his precious mother, Wanda Ganzer. I was her hairdresser and she thought that I would be the perfect gal for her son that she loved greater than life itself, but no more than she loved her daughter Patty. Wanda is a perfect example of a mother's unconditional love and I was always inspired by Dickie's wonderful family. They always felt like family to me and shortly after Dickie and I were introduced they did become my family that I was extremely proud to be a part of. Dickie and I shared approximately four years together and he was truly the love of my life. As life has it, God saw things differently and we went separate ways but without doing so, we would not have Dickie's beautiful daughter Laci and her sweet boy, Noah who I still remain to be a part of Dickie's legacy. I express my sincere sympathy for his family but I also celebrate what Dickie is doing today while enjoying his place in the Kingdom where all who are saved will see you again soon, Dickie. We love you!!
