Dick Niles


Dick died in Buffalo Hospital following Heart Surgery on April 1. He was a Blue Knight Silver Life member joining first with NY V and then transferring to Ont. V in 1987. Over the years we were constantly regaled with those endless stories which he loved tell. These stories about his life were drawn from his adventures in Catholic boarding school, his military service, his band, his job with Buffalo PD. and his years spent with Sue... to name but a few!

Truly, this was a content man who was quite comfortable just sitting, talking and enjoying his family & friends. Dick (or as I used to kid him in our newsletters - Darrell, Darwin or Derrick…etc) was a person we all felt comfortable around and privileged to have been considered as friends. Many have commented how it will be his constant smile that will be missed most!

At his request cremation has taken place and Sue is now arranging for a Memorial Service ... information will follow. Sue will continue to be a member of our chapter and carry on for him as he would have wanted. He is with Heaven I now and finally back riding, likely playing his accordion and entertaining those friends who were waiting
there to hear the old stories one more time!

You will be greatly missed…..Desmond ….

Be with Peace my friend.
