Richard E. Waterloo

March 18, 2022

Richard E. Waterloo passed peacefully in the care of Pacifica Senior Living in Pinehurst with help of Hospice and wonderful staff there on March 16, 2022, with his daughter close to him. He is at peace now and living life as he would like in heaven after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Per his request there will be no service.

Dick, as he went by, was born May 15, 1938, to George and Marcelle Waterloo at their home in Naples. He went to Naples Elementary and then continued to Bonners Ferry High School, where he graduated. He spent 1961-63 in the Army in Oklahoma and then, honorably discharged, he served in the Army Reserves until 1967.

After Oklahoma, he moved back to Naples and resided on the Waterloo property until after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, when had to be moved for extra help to The Bridge at Sandpoint and then on to Pacifica in Pinehurst.
He logged all his life and worked with many companies until co-owned his own company until he retired. He had re-married in 1989 and he and MaryLee enjoyed fishing and dancing and a little gambling together as well as chores around the house. He loved riding his four-wheeler around the property.

He spent many hours on his mower and Cat keeping his yard looking like a park. He always enjoyed hunting of all kinds and was able to watch his grandkids develop their hunting skill.

He woke up early one morning recently and stated to the nurse he was going to go bear hunting. Now he will be able to feed the hummingbirds, turkeys and watch all the deer, moose and elk whenever he wants.

He always had a great story to tell. He will be greatly missed by all family and friends.

Dick is survived by his wife, MaryLee Waterloo, who is in Kenwood, California, for care at her daughter’s. Also survived by his daughter, Lisa Cossairt (Toby), Pasco, Washington, grandchildren Ashley Johnson (Clayton) and Tyler Cossairt, both of Pasco, sister Louise Raver, Emmett, Idaho, nephew Rob Acker, Boise, and step children, Erin, Eric and Colleen of California and Clayton of Oregon. He is preceded in death by his parents, George and Marcelle Waterloo, brother George Waterloo, a son and his grandparents.

As he leaves us behind, he has left us with many great memories and a property to enjoy as he did and will always be in spirit when we are there. We will be able to someday tell him of our adventures there.
