Constance, Richard Lee
died suddenly due to complications from COVID-19 on November 23, 2020. Born on June 22, 1950 in Independence, Missouri. Rick grew up in Kearney, Missouri and was a graduate of Kearney High School.
He moved to St. Louis when he married Susan (nee Lauman), his wife of 43 years. Rick is survived by his wife, his father, Dean Constance, his brother and sister, Robin Constance and Deb (Constance) Harris.
Rick was the proud uncle of Jodi Rever, Kristal Blessing, Nick Lauman, Emily (John) Kresyman and the newest addition, Mathilda. He was also a generous and supportive brother-in-law as well as irreplaceable friend, to Ric (Rose) Lauman and Ray (Julie) Lauman.
A graduate of UMKC School of Law, he was a practicing attorney and member of the Missouri Bar Association for over 45 years. He was an ardent supporter of city living and was an urban dweller that entire time. He loved being six minutes away from his two favorite sports teams - The Cardinals and the basketball SLU Billikens.
He was a longstanding member of the Missouri Athletic Club, as well as an avid golfer and tennis player. He always had a smile on his face and never met a person he would not greet and then strike up a conversation. He enjoyed life to the fullest each and every day. He is heartbreakingly missed by so many but leaves behind treasured memories.
Services: Due to the pandemic, there will be no service at this time. Rather a celebration of his life will be held in late spring or early summer. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Compton Heights Neighborhood Betterment Association at 3026 Geyer, St. Louis, MO 63104.
