Dick was born and raised in South San Francisco, CA. He attended All Souls Elementary School and Junipero Serra High School. He graduated from the University of San Francisco, and immediately began his career in education there after. He coached the USF Men's Golf Team for 21 years, where he led the team to numerous WCC titles.
Dick is survived by his devoted wife, Judy and his children, Jamie Gonzalez (Nick) and Jaeson Nicolopulos. He also left behind two adoring grandchildren, Jack and Ella Gonzalez.
A celebration of his life will be held on Friday, February 10th at 10AM at All Souls Catholic Church in South San Francisco. A reception to follow at Lake Merced Country Club, in Daly City.
Golf Attire is strongly encouraged to honor and remember "The Coach."
We look forward to hearing all the fabulous stories our family and friends can share about Dick at the reception.
In lieu of flowers, our family has requested any donations be made to The First Tee, supporting youth golf.
