RICHARD A. DAGUE - SOUTH BURLINGTON - Richard A. Dague, 71, of South Burlington, died June 12, 2014, in Burlington Health & Rehab, with his loving daughter by his side, after a brief, yet courageous fight with cancer. Richard was born March 19, 1943, in Burlington, to the late Mark and Mona (Ryan) Dague. He served his country by joining the United States Army when he was 18, with most of his work being served in Germany. Upon returning from Germany, Richard held different manufacturing jobs, with his last being with E.B & A.C. Whiting Co. in Burlington. He retired from there in 2008. In 1987, Richard married Barbara J. Sears and together they raised Richard's only child, Nichole. In retirement, Richard enjoyed working security for the Pines, where he resided. Richard also enjoyed many years of playing softball, collecting baseball cards, playing pool, reading, and was a lifetime Yankee fan. Richard was a wonderful man and father who will be missed dearly. Richard was predeceased by his wife, Barbara, in March 2013; sisters, Janet, Shirley and Joan; and brother, Jerry. He is survived by two sisters, Patricia Dague of Burlington, and Linda Blair of Winooski; daughter, Nichole and her husband, Alan Cunningham, and their three children, of St. Albans; many nieces, nephews, and friends from the Pines; and very special friend, Dylan Cromer of South Burlington. A memorial service will be held Friday, June 20, 2014, at 6 p.m. at the Pines Senior Living Community, 7 Aspen Dr., off Dorset Street.
