April 25, 2016
uly 7, 1931 - March 24, 2016 Dick Valentine, actor, teacher, devoted husband, passed away at the age of 84. Valentine is survived by his wife of 45 years, Dorothy Kelly Valentine. He began his acting career in summer stock and then it was on to Chicago, where he shared the stage with headliners like Betty Grable and Martha Raye. In the late 60's, Valentine appeared in feature films such as Angel and Fireball Forward. His TV credits included Kojak and Bionic Woman. Valentine had a wonderful sense of humor and he parlayed that gift into teaching a comedy improv class. He loved the classes. So did his students, who appreciated him not only for the knowledge he passed along; but because he laughed the loudest during their performances. Dick will be missed by those who knew and loved him. And so will his laughter.
