Richard "Dick" Pebley Obituary
In Loving Memory RICHARD "DICK" PEBLEY 1927 - 2013 We little knew that morning God was going to call your name, In Life we loved you dearly in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you the day you went home.You left us beautiful memories your love is still our guide,And although we cannot see you, you are always at our side.Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, But when God calls us one by one the chain will link again. We all love you and miss you. On November 13, 2013, Dick "PaPa" Pebley, 86, passed away peacefully from heart failure, at his home in the Temecula area. Although he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's approximately 12 years ago, he had a heart attack on November 1, and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and lung cancer which ultimately was the cause of his death. Dick was born on March 13, 1927, in Buena Park, California. He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Florene "Granny" Pebley; daughter Sandy Sommers; three grandchildren, Rhenda Lord, René Davenport, and Richard Leaverton; four great grandchildren, Jade, Joseph, Luke, and Isla; and sister Suzann Foster. Dick was preceded in death by his parents, Luther and Susie, his sister Genevieve Short, and brothers; Delmar and Bill. Dick was raised in Weatherford, Oklahoma and returned to Anaheim, California after serving in the United States Coast Guard. He started into business along with his two brothers, Delmar and Bill, under Pebley Brothers, building custom homes. He was a member of the Anaheim Volunteer Fire Department, Anaheim Elks and Isaac Walton League. Although family was his passion, Dick enjoyed bowling, golf, camping and fishing. In 1971, he went into business on his own under "Dick Pebley Construction" specializing in commercial shopping centers and restaurants where he continued until his retirement in 1984. They retired to their Circle P Ranch where he had built their home in the Temecula area. Many good times were spent there with family and friends. Dick jokingly insisted that he was not a volunteer, his wife was, however, he was responsible for many of the improvements to the Chapter House and Thrift Shop for the Assistance League of the Temecula Valley. All who knew him, in the Will Rogers sense of the phrase, liked, loved and respected him - - another great memorial. Thank you "PaPa" for all the precious memories, with our everlasting love, now and forever Florene "Granny" and Family
