Dick Purol Death, Obituary – We were been made aware of the untimely loss of Dick Purol, who served as the Town Supervisor of Dunkirk. The passage of his life is a terrible blow to the community. Dick was a dedicated first responder and a remarkable member of the public service community.
He was not only a good friend but also a wonderful guide and a wonderful business partner. We had the honor of commemorating him for his 52 years of service at the annual banquet of the East Dunkirk Fire Department, which took place earlier this month. The luncheon was held earlier this month.
Purol was a devout patriot who had served his country with distinction in the United States Army from 1944 to 1946. As an engineer at AT&T for a significant amount of time up until the time of his retirement in April 1976, he worked there. Following that, he settled down in the town of Oscoda.
When Purol and Beatrice were enjoying their retirement years, they spent several winters in Gulf Shores, Alabama and Texas, where they were able to take part in square dancing and enjoy a variety of other activities. Due to the fact that he was capable of repairing anything, a number of people referred to him as the “Jack of All Trades.”
Purol decided that he would handle everything on his own rather than getting the repairman involved. Purol is survived by his devoted wife, Beatrice; his twin sons, Purol (Judith Ann) Krueger and Douglas Krueger; his daughter, Donna Lumetta; his son, Kent (Dianne) Krueger; eleven grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; brother, Edwin (Ilene) Krueger; sisters, Carol (Wesley) Krause and Joanne Becker; and a sister-in-law, Donna Lumetta. Purol also leaves behind a sister-in- The passing of Purol occurred on April 15, 2019.
