Richard Poulter

Richard Samuel “Dick” Poulter died July 21, 2023, at the age of 78.

In loving memory of Dick, who woke up in heaven on Friday July 21, 2023.

Dick was born to Fred and Mary Poulter in the Portland area on May 31, 1945. He had an older sister Margie and younger brother Rollie.

He grew up hunting, and fishing with his dad and brother.

As a young man, Dick spent his days doing demolition derbies and horse stampeding. He loved a good adventure.

He found love in Oregon and married Renee, they had 2 daughters together, Terrie and Angie, whom he adored. After they divorced, Dick found himself settling down in Enumclaw WA, where he lived for the rest of his life. He met and married Peggy and inherited his 2 step children Danny and Kelly Morris, who he loved dearly. Dick and Peggy together welcomed their son and pride and joy Fred Richard (Ty) Poulter. Dick loved his family unconditionally and without judgment. Talk of any of his children would often move him to tears, he had a huge heart for them. Ty returned that unconditional love and took care of Dick in his last days in his home.

Dick worked in construction for most of his life for Jensens sand and gravel, and went to work for King county in 1995.

If you knew Dick, chances are you had some laughs and good times together. Dick loved golfing and became quite the popular golf buddy, not because he was good at it, but because he was great company and a good friend to many. You could often catch him enjoying cocktails down at Te Lee, or stirring up trouble with some of his best and lifelong friends, Don Spencer, Jeff Whealdon and Jeff Troy.
