Richard "Dick" Workman

Richard "Dick" Workman, born January 1,1954, gained his Heavenly reward on July 4, 2022, after a short illness.

A lifelong resident of Harts, West Virginia, Dick was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph "Jack" Workman and Anna (Adams) Workman, as well as his brother, William "Bill" Workman.

Dick became an ordained minister in 2002, and was a member of Morning Star Freewill Baptist Church in Chapmanville, West Virginia. He shared his love of God everywhere he went, with everyone he knew, and everyone he met.

Those left to cherish his memory and celebrate his Heavenly achievement are his wife of 49 years, Jewel (Ritchie) Workman and his children: Nicole (Mark) Dalton of Harts, West Virginia; Tara (Paul) Warner of Huntersville, North Carolina; Joshua (Carrie) Workman of Harts, West Virginia; and Jacob Workman (Madison Bryce) of Harts, West Virginia. Dick was immensely blessed with his grandchildren, who will miss their Poppy: Piper, Henry, and Georgia Dalton; Cylas and Parker Workman; Sienna, Layla, Penelope, and Talley Workman and Brayden Bryce.

Join us to celebrate Dick's life at his home church, Morning Star Freewill Baptist Church, Striker Fork Road, Chapmanville, West Virginia, on Saturday, July 9, 2022.

Visitation: 12:00 - 2:00 P.M.
Memorial Service: 2:00 P.M.

Services will be conducted by Ronny Collins and Jason Adkins.

Collins Funeral Home, of Switzer, West Virginia, are in charge of arrangements.

Dick was a special cousin! We all loved being together at his parents' house and at Grandma's and Grandpa's house growing up! Music and singing was enjoyed at all our reunions! We all reconnected as adults and spent quality time in conversations.
Heaven has received a man of God! We will miss him, but his memory lives on. Family memories are treasures!

I'm so sorry and saddened to hear about Dicks passing...he was such a great cousin and we shared a lot of good memories as children growing up. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Prayers of peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Sorry for your loss. Dick was a good man, a man of God, and a great cousin. We had some great times together as teenagers.
