Obituary for Harvey Richard Adolph

Harvey Richard  Adolph
Harvey Richard “Dick” Adolph, 79, passed away peacefully in his sleep January 10, 2019, at his home in Colby.

Born June 10, 1939, in Milliken, Colo., Dick spent many childhood summers on a farm north of Levant. He eventually moved fulltime to Levant and attended Colby High School, graduating in 1958. On the farm he learned to fly and to drive fast.

Dick worked hard from an early age, and saved up to buy a new car at age 14. The car helped a few years later in 1958 when he met Julie Hess, a young woman who lived in Kansas City, Mo. One year and many road trips later, Dick and Julie married in Colby on September 1, 1959. They lived on the farm north of Levant. They later moved to Colby and lived there until 1972 when they moved to Topeka, so Dick could attend Washburn University. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. While attending school, Dick worked nights as a Licensed Mental Health Technician at the Menninger Foundation. He was also a member of National Guard.

After Dick’s education was complete, Dick and Julie moved back to Colby, where Dick farmed.

In retirement Dick pursued his passions of bowling with friends and gardening with Julie.

Dick was preceded in death by his Aunt Veda and husband Chet Moore, and granddaughter Candace (Adolph) Gay. Surviving are wife Julie, Colby; son Kerry and wife Kathi Adolph, Lawrence; daughter Jennifer and husband Ab Smith, Sharon Springs; daughter Kristin and husband Greg Issinghoff, Clovis, Calif; sister Jean Richers, Saint Francis, and five grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Monday, January 14, 2019 at Baalmann Mortuary in Colby. Burial will follow at Beulah Cemetery, Colby. Memorials are suggested to Citizens Medical Center, in care of Baalmann Mortuary, PO Box 391, Colby, KS 67701.
