Richard B. Sheridan M.D. Obituary
October 26, 1932 - January 25, 2018 Dick Sheridan passed away on January 25th after suffering from Lewy Body Dementia and Parkinson's disease for seven years. He endured his afflictions with great courage, patience, dignity, and of course, the humor for which he was well-known. Dick was born in Brooklyn, New York, and moved with his mother, Greta, and father, Joe, to Monterey Park, an LA suburb, in California when he was very young. He attended St. Stephens elementary school, and Cantwell High School. After military service in Korea, he attended and graduated from Loyola University and went on to medical school at Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he met his future wife, Margaret Nolan. After internship and residency at San Diego County Hospital, he and his family lived in Hacienda Heights and Whittier, California. Dick practiced Obstetrics & Gynecology in West Covina, CA, for 30+years. He was also certified in the Addiction Medicine specialty which he practiced for over 10 years. He and Marge relocated to Sonoma, CA, in retirement where Dick was very active in choral groups, writing groups and community theatre. He was an avid LA Dodger fan and a loyal friend of Bill W's for over 43 years. He is survived by his wife Margaret, sons Peter (Kimberly) and Andrew, and daughter Caroline (Russell Triplett), six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Friends and family are invited to attend a visitation from 4:30pm until 6:30pm with a Vigil Service at 5:00pm on Friday, February 2nd at Duggan's Mission Chapel, 525 W. Napa St., Sonoma, CA. A Funeral Mass will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, February 3rd at St. Leo the Great Catholic Church, 601 West Agua Caliente Rd., Sonoma. In lieu of flowers, donations to Hospice by the Bay, Sonoma County Council on Aging (Sr. Social Club), or Cantwell HS, Montebello, CA, are suggested.
