He earned a B.S. from ETSU and an M.S. from UT. He taught at Northeast State for 17 years, starting with Automotive and ending with Economics. Dick was a lifelong member of Wheeler UMC, past president of Kingsport Antique and Rod Club and founder of the Muddy Creek Bologna Tasting Society. He was a purveyor in ferrous oxides, vintage car enthusiast and farmer. He will be remembered for his quick wit and sense of humor.

Dick was lucky enough to have two great loves, and is survived by his wife Susie Rutledge, daughters Heather Cartwright and Hilary Cartwright Radford, and granddaughter Renee Radford. A celebration of life will be held in the spring of 2022.
