Richard "Dick" Scheu

Louisville - Richard Victor Scheu of Louisville died Friday evening, at the age of 78. Richard was born in Lancaster, Ohio to Theodore and Adriane Scheu. He served in the Navy during the Cuban missile crisis, and married his wife, Lynn McLaughlin Scheu not long after graduating from The Ohio State University in 1966. He moved his wife and two young sons to Louisville to start a new business, Compensation Tax Management. In 1997 he created his first wooden Kentucky Snow ornament, which started his second career and passion that filled his days until his death. Richard was a competitive swimmer at Lakeside Swim Club, a member of the Kyana Woodworking Club, and was active with the YMCA. He is survived by his wife Lynn and sons Michael (of Eugene, Oregon) and David (of Saint Louis). Richard was respected and adored by people from every corner of his life, and we continue to be amazed at the outpouring of love that his friends have expressed for him. A memorial will be held in Louisville this Saturday, January 14 from 2-4 PM at Captain's Quarters on River Road.
