John Richard "Rick" Salane COLUMBIA- John Richard "Rick" Salane died April 29, 2014, after a brief illness. Born in Washington DC on August 7, 1950, he was a son of Thomas Joseph Salane and Marjorie Creed Salane. Rick's passions in life were friends, family and golf - not necessarily in that order. He worked most of his life as a club golf professional at Coldstream, WildeWood, and Forest Lake Club. Rick enjoyed music and was an avid supporter and volunteer for the Columbia Blues Festival. The loves of his life were Diane Salane, his wife, Richard Salane, his son, and grandpuppy, Fang. In addition to his wife and son, Rick is survived by siblings, Thom (Linda), Bill (Alison), Debbie Salane Skipper (Robin) and sister-in-law, Teri. He was predeceased by his parents and brother, Robert Salane. The family wishes to thank the Heart Failure Team and staff at MUSC in Charleston. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to the
, Special Olympics of South Carolina or The Animal Mission. A memorial service will be held at the Keenan Chapel of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral at 11 AM on Saturday, May 3, 2014. The family will receive friends at the home between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm on Friday, May 2, 2014. Please sign the online guestbook at www.dunbarfuneralhomedevine.com.
