Jim Guidry Commentaries Hurricane Ike Remembered
In Remembrance
Richard Lee (Dick) Lister
Malloy & Son Funeral Home

Richard Lee (Dick) Lister, 66, of Galveston, died Thursday, September 18, 2008 from complications associated with multiple myeloma.


Funeral service will be 10:00 am, Thursday, September 25th at St. John the

Theologian Greek Orthodox Church in Webster, Texas with Father Serge Veselinovich officiating.  Burial will be at Highland Cemetery in Ottawa, Kansas.


Born in Ottawa, Kansas, Dick and his father formed Lister Plumbing in 1962 and operated it together until his father retired in 1976.  In 1983 Dick relocated to Galveston, Texas where he operated Lister Plumbing with his two sons until his own retirement in 2003.


Dick was a true gentleman and ethical businessman who took great satisfaction

whenever he could use his knowledge or resources to mentor his employees and

solve difficult problems for his customers.  And despite the long hours and stresses of operating a small business, his wife and family always came first.


He is preceded in death by his father Willard Newell Lister and his mother Mabel Ellen Finch Lister of Ottawa, Kansas.


He is survived by his wife of 44 years LaVita Lister; son Richard Lee Lister, Jr. and

his wife Lynnette and their daughters Jennifer and Katelynn; son Robert Edmund Lister; and daughter Amy Christine Madril and her husband Adrian.  He is also survived by sister Dee Ellen Kruzel, brother Willard Newell (Bill) Lister, Jr. and sister Jane Marie Taul, all of Ottawa, Kansas.


Dick's family wishes to express their sincere thanks to the staff of UTMB and M.D.

Anderson Hospital for their professional and caring treatment.


In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, 383 Main Avenue, 5th Floor, Norwalk, CT 06851.
