Richard J. Scuglik, 62, of Deerbrook, and formerly of Rhinelander, died on June 14, 2012, at the Aspirus Wausau Hospital. He was born on Sept. 17, 1949, in Racine, to Joseph and Bernice (Burdick) Scuglik.
Dick attended schools in Kenosha, graduating from St. Joseph’s High School in 1967. He then recieved his undergraduate degree from the UW-Whitewater. He continued his schooling at the UW-Stevens Point, where he recieved a Masters degree in Communications. He and his family moved to Rhinelander in 1987, where Dick was employed by Nicolet College. He taught computer programming and more recently home technology. He was always busy. Besides his teaching he was involved in other business and ventures through the years that he had started.
When he wasn’t working he enjoyed all the northwoods had to offer, especially golf and fishing. In earlier years he was an avid motorcyclist who enjoyed many cross country trips with friends. He was a past member of the Rhinelander Lion’s Club, and he was not afraid to try new things, hence the painting and recent wine making. He married Kimberley Schey on June 26, 2004.
Dick is survived by his wife, Kimberley of Deerbrook; his son, Jason of Milwaukee; his father, Joseph of Kenosha; his sister, Joyce (Kelly) Infusino of Kenosha; two brothers, James (Betsy) of Kenosha and Edward (Deborah) of Neenah; nieces, nephews and many friends. He was preceded by his daughter, Andrea; and his mother, Bernice.
Visitation for Dick will be held on Wednesday, June 20, from 1 to 3 p.m., with funeral services following at 3 p.m., all at the Carlson Funeral Home. The Reverend Kari Vadis will officiate. Cancer research was a passion of Dick’s, and a memorial is being established for that purpose.
