25 Years Ago This Week – 1988
For the previous five seasons, the St. Marys Roughriders’ baseball tournament ended before it even had a chance to get started. From 1983-1987, the Roughriders had the door slammed shut on them in the opening game of sectionals, but their fate all changed this week in 1988 when they posted a dramatic 8-5 win over the Bath Wildcats on their home field in Lima.
Don Lee Dicke, 77, quietly ascended from the pain and suffering of his physical body into the open arms of our Lord in Heaven, Jesus Christ, at 12:20 a.m. Tuesday, May 1, 2013. In his last days, he was comforted, and reassured by all who loved him that he had fought and suffered long enough.
He was born on Sept. 30, 1935.
He is survived by his wife, Lois Ann Berning, whom he married on Sept. 13, 1958, and children Pamela (Dicke) Miller, Christine Dicke, Michael Dicke and friend Trish Carter, Todd and Bridget (Schwartz) Dicke.
