Richard Jervis, "Dik" as he was known, passed away peacefully in his home in Freeport, Maine, on Wednesday, February 27, 2019.

Dik was born February 11, 1932 in Ambler, PA. to Joseph and Helen Jervis. He grew up with his brother Gordon and his sister June and attended Ambler High School. Upon graduation, Dik became the first in his family to attend college. He received his Bachelors Degree in 1954 from Penn State – and so began a life long love affair with Nittany Lions Football.

Upon graduation Dik enlisted in the Army and was stationed in Korea for two years. When he was discharged he and a friend travelled the globe on their way home, visiting over 20 different countries. Dik loved to travel and often talked about that trip.

When he returned home Dik married his wife Beverly (Lamberson). He took a job with the Travelers Insurance Company and the two soon settled in Devon, PA. and had three daughters.

Dik retired in 1987 after 27 years with the same company. In 2006, he and Beverly moved to Maine to live with their daughter April (Dieterle) and her husband Jad. Dik and Bev enjoyed exploring the coastal towns, dining out and especially spending time with their three grandsons – Jake, Hayden and Luke. Dik developed a wonderful group of friends with whom he played golf weekly. They were a great source of fun and friendship. In the winter, Dik and Bev would head to Florida for a few months where they had another cohort of folks that they loved to spend time with.

Dik is survived by his daughters Dawn (Moore) and her husband Greg, Robyn (Lonto) and her husband Rob and April (Dieterle) and her husband Jad; and his six grandchildren – Jake, Hayden and Luke Dieterle – Ben Kaplan – Rachel and Ryan Lonto.

Dik and I were more than friends. He was my mentor while we worked together while at the Travelers for many years. Always with a positive attitude. Such an outgoing guy. Love for his daughters. I will truly miss him. His spirit lives on.

I am a part of that Florida group that Dik has known so well. He referred to me as the "old man" as I was born 42 days before him. We drank together, ate together, told ribald stories together and laughed together. Dik could out laugh anybody and we all loved him. One day we were talking while sitting outside his place on the canal and Bev, deep in her dementia, cut in and made a comment that was clever and quite humorous, showing that while she had lost much of her memory, her mind remained sharp and understanding. Dik enlarged my life, for which I am ever grateful.
