Born on January 4, 1927 in Delaware Twp., Juniata Co., he is a son of the late Charles Olan and Pearl Anna (Rumbaugh) Dimm.

On August 24, 1950, he married his wife, Anna Pearl (Gingrich) Dimm with whom he was blessed to share over 45 years of marriage with before her passing on October 27, 1995.

Surviving him are: three children, Marvin Richard Dimm of Wormleysburg, Cynthia D. Kerstetter and her husband Warren of Dauphin, and Daryl D. Dimm and his wife Sandy of Mifflintown; five grandchildren, Tricia E. Seaman and her husband Daniel, Adam R. Dimm and his wife Jessica, Kelly N. Kerstetter, Jon T.

Kratzer and her husband Kenny; and ten great-grandchildren, Anna Wisner and her husband Derek, Jenna Seaman, Emma Seaman, Noah Seaman, Wesley Seaman, Owen Dimm, Parker Dimm, Addison Dimm, Rylie Kerstetter, and Coltin Kerstetter.

In addition to his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Ruth E. Dimm and Evelyn M. Dimm, making him the last of his generation.

Dick enjoyed rebuilding and restoring Massey-Harris tractors, in earlier life playing the trombone, deer hunting, being a local dirt track racing supporter, NASCAR, and was a life long learner with computers and modern technology.

With his grandchildren affectionately calling him “Pappy,” he will be remembered throughout the community, especially the racing community, as Pappy Dimm.

Pappy Dimm was a wonderful man. Always asking about others and a big smile on his face. I have so many fond memories of him from the days at the Greenwood racetrack. Thanks for sharing your grandpa with everyone. He touched so many in the juniata county community. ❤️❤️

I remember Dick very fondly when I would go to his appliance store with my parents when I was little and he would always greet us with a big hi and how do you do. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him. Linda Erb
