Richard (Dick) Lee Remley, age 82, passed away Monday, November 9, 2020 at Lasting Legacy.

At Dick’s request, there will be no services.

He was born December 17, 1937 in Harrison, Idaho to Charles and Doris Remley. Dick lived the life of a true American Cowboy. He left Harrison, Idaho at the age of 15 and went to Montana, working on various ranches. Days off were spent at rodeos. He rode saddle broncs, bare back and bulls winning buckles along the way. Working on a ranch in Big Timber is where he met his wife, Alice, of 58 years. They were married January 5, 1962. They then moved to Glendive where their sons Jay and Shawn were born. In 1972 they moved to Wyoming to work at Rocky Point Grazing Association, staying there four years before moving to The Trail Creek Association. This is where Dick spent the next 42 years, working a job he loved. He made many long lasting friendships along the way and he continued to rodeo. Dick and his good friend Joe Toohey participated in team roping at The Old Timer’s Rodeo for many years.

Dick is survived by his wife, Alice of Gillette, Wyo.; brother, Bill Remley of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; sisters, Charlene Delyea of Gillette, Wyo., Sharon Butterfield of Harrison, Idaho, and Kathy McDaniels of Rose Lake, Idaho; sons, Jay (Martha) Remley and grandsons Sepp Remley and Ivan Remley of Lockhart, Texas, Shawn (Pam) Remley and grandson Gage (Mattie) Remley of Gillette, Wyo. and granddaughter Allison (Tyler) Colby of Gillette, Wyo.; numerous nieces and nephews; and honorary granddaughters, Grace Davis and Kelly Davis.
