In loving memory of Harold R. “Bud” Dickey, a man of enduring character and grace, who at the age of 90, found his eternal rest on Sunday, September 17, 2023, surrounded by the warmth of his loved ones in Honey Brook, PA. He now reunites with his beloved wife, Lois W. Dickey, who embarked on her heavenly journey in 2022. Bud’s earthly journey began in Coatesville, PA, as the cherished son of the late Harold Raymond and Hannah Scully Dickey.

Bud’s life was a testament to resilience and dedication. In 1950, he proudly graduated from Scott High School, setting the foundation for a fulfilling career as an auto mechanic. His skilled hands graced Malcolm Wright Buick in Thorndale, PA, and later, he took the helm at Town Service Center in Parkesburg. His commitment and craftsmanship left an indelible mark on all he served.

His unwavering faith led him to the embrace of the Parkesburg Presbyterian Church, where his spirit found solace, and to Masonic Lodge #383 in Coatesville, where he stood as a devoted member for an impressive 49 years, rising to the esteemed rank of Past Master.

Bud’s legacy continues through his surviving son, Dale A. (Ann Shank) Dickey of Coatesville, and the generations that follow – five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren. His memory is also cherished by his siblings, Kenny Dickey of Lancaster and Marion Arrowood of Glenmoore, PA. He is predeceased by his son, Harold H. “Butch” Dickey, and his sister, Ruth Arrowood.

In their time of grief, the family extends their heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate staff at Tel Hai Retirement Community and the dedicated caregivers from Compasses Hospice for their unwavering care and support.

To honor Bud’s memory, a memorial service will be held on Friday, September 29, 2023, at 1:00 PM, at the Wilde Funeral Home, 434 Main St., Parkesburg, PA, 19365. A visitation will precede the service, commencing at 12:00 PM, with Masonic services to be conducted at 12:45 PM.

In lieu of floral tributes, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the Brandywine-Goddard Lodge #383, a cause dear to Bud’s heart.

In this time of sorrow, let us remember that though Bud may have left this earthly realm, his spirit remains alive in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. As we bid him farewell, we find solace in the knowledge that his legacy lives on in the countless lives he touched. May his soul find eternal peace in the presence of the Divine, and may his memory continue to bring us comfort and strength.
