Dick Salisbury

Dick Salisbury Photo Richard Lee “Dick” Salisbury, 75, of Moscow, Idaho passed away unexpectedly April 8, 2017 at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston.

A celebration of his life will be held at the Moscow Church of the Nazarene at 2:00 pm, Friday April 14th. Dr. Randall Craker will be officiating.

Dick was born July 30, 1941 at Caldwell, ID to Milton A. and Esther Daniels Salisbury.

At the age of 6 Dick felt God’s call into ministry. God led him to college at NNU and Nazarene Theological Seminary. For 25 years, he was a devoted voice of God. The Nazarene Church gave him a pulpit to spread Christ’s Word of love and redemption. After these years of ministry in the Northwest, Dick was in a car accident that led to his eventual retirement. His focus of ministry, caring, and prayer were a daily calling on his life.

Dick is survived by his wife, Joann, of 52 years, and by his children, Kurt and Lisa Salisbury, Kevin and Malissa Salisbury, Kory Salisbury, Sue and Tim Norvell. He had 9 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. Also surviving are a brother, Edwin Salisbury and three sisters, Marybeth Salisbury, Nancy Warren, and Margret McPherson and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Viewing will be at Short’s Funeral Chapel on Wednesday from noon until 6:00 PM and on Thursday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

The family suggests memorials be made to the Union Gospel Mission, 1224 East Trent Ave., Spokane, WA  99202.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Short’s Funeral Chapel, Moscow, and online condolences may be sent to www.shortsfuneralchapel.net.

    Joann and Family, Sorry to hear of your loss. I so remember the good times we all hade at the Orchards Nazarene Church.
    Growing up with the boys in the neighborhood. How scared we all were when Kory got ran over by Mr. Wheatherbe’s tractor. How the Power of Prayer worked that he was alright. My thoughts and Prayers are with you all in your time of Healing. The Lord bless you and give you comfort in your time of this loss.

    Sending love.

    I want to express my sincerest sympathy to Joann and the Salisbury family and friends because of losing Dick recently in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40 and John 11:23-25) Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: “is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago.” Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live……And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it.” For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. Again, the family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to contact me if you wish at my email address; myranj@centurytel.net
