Ret. AF Major Richard (Dicke) Earl Fallon
July 31, 1945 – January 6, 2021  (age 75)

Richard (Dicke) Earl Fallon of Fort Walton Beach, Florida went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, 6 January 2021.  Dicke was born in Sioux City, Iowa on July 31, 1945 to Clifford Benjamin (CB) and Evangeline Inez Fallon.  He was the youngest of five children, growing up with three sisters Virginia, Marge, and Carole, and brother Cliff.

Dicke will be remembered as the gentle giant who would help anyone in need.  He was a legend to so many of his nieces and nephews, always making time for them when he came home to Sioux City for visits.  He was a good listener, had the patience of Job, and was very knowledgeable about pretty much everything.  He will also be remembered by his quirky sense of humor, always pretending to be Lyndon B. Johnson when his kids would telephone him.  He was also an excellent classical guitar player.  There are so many fond memories of gathering around him while he strummed the strings, singing gently his favorite folk songs.

Dicke is survived by his wife of almost 50 years, Diana Madrid Fallon, children Joshua Fallon (Dawn), Jake Fallon, Jessie Jacobs (Leo), grandchildren Kierstyn Fallon, Brianna Tikhovskyy, Gabe Fallon, Liora Fallon, Marley Jacobs, and Harper Jacobs.  He is also survived by his three sisters Virginia Renner, Marge Bosco, and Carole Beck, and brother, Cliff Fallon, and countless nieces and nephews.
