June 17, 1944 - Nov. 22, 2019
Richard Jefferson Fry III, born June 17, 1944, passed away on Nov. 22, 2019, at the age of 75 years old. Growing up as an Air Force brat, Richard made rank as a Staff Sergeant at the end of his four-year tour of duty, being honorably discharged in 1972. That same year, he married the love of his life, Linda Woolley Fry.
In addition to being a loving husband and father to two children, Richard worked as a school teacher, retiring as head of the social studies department at Marshall High School in the Northside Independent School District. He inspired many students during his 36-years in the classroom. In his younger years, he loved to surf and later in life he could often be found hiking trails in the Rocky Mountains.
A private memorial service will be held at Fort Sam National Cemetery on Dec. 13, but all are encouraged to raise a glass to an amazing father, fantastic teacher and a wonderful friend.
