Rochester, NY

Richard Thomas Haviland Richard Thomas Haviland, age 86, died peacefully Saturday, March 2, 2024. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on February 11, 1938, to Martha and John Haviland. He is predeceased by his brother John Haviland (Diane), Patricia Dallavalle (Art) and Mary Jane Miszewski (Robert). He is survived by his loving wife Joan, his children Anne Haviland (Adam Nagelvoort), John Haviland (Laureen), David Haviland (Donna), Kate Pedersen (partner John Murray), and Caroline Haviland. His grandchildren Matt and Jenny Wachala, Nina Haviland, Anna Haviland, Devlyn Haviland, Derek Haviland, Dawson Haviland, and Jacob Pedersen. As well as his nieces and nephews Janet Schlosnagle (Don), Nancy Dallavalle (Rob Wething), James Dallavalle, Barbara Dallavalle (Paul Gunsch), Robert Haviland (Sue), Karen Cleveland and Jane Haviland, as well as countless friends from Mt. Morris and Honeoye Falls who became family. For many summers he and his family were thrilled to welcome cousins Susan, Michael, Sarah, Martha, and Liz whose parents had passed. Their family went from 5 to 10 children. Dick and Joan were only in their 30's! Richard grew up in Milwaukee and attended Holy Redeemer Elementary School and Messmer High School. He received his bachelors and masters degrees from Marquette University and his PhD from the University of Buffalo. He started as a speech therapist in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Dick and family then moved to New York where he taught in the Speech and Hearing Department at the State University of New York at Geneseo. After receiving his doctorate, he worked for the Developmental Disability Services Offices which led to his helping people who were in institutions. He hired artists to create murals and mobiles to brighten their environment. He was instrumental in helping with the transition from institutions to the group homes in the community. HIs position as Chief of Service enabled him to continue to make a difference to the people with disabilities and mentor staff. After he retired, he focused on his love of photography. He enjoyed working at Wright Images and taking lots of photos. He was a member of The Photographic Historical Society. He formed a company called Film for Classics that cut and spooled film which enabled people worldwide to use their vintage cameras. All his life, he helped others. He volunteered with the homeless at Dimitri House, with the dying at Benincasa, and he took Holy Communion to shut ins. He was a member of Spiritus Christi Church in Rochester where he and Joan and Sarah Brownell were inspired to form Friends of Borgne, Inc. This is a foundation that helps educate children in Borgne, Haiti. He helped the Village of Honeoye Falls to become Sister Cities with Borgne. He was a tireless fundraiser for the children of Haiti. His trip to Borgne was a highlight of his life. He responded to a years' long request to have a marching band in Haiti by gathering and repairing musical instruments which were taken to Borgne. The Havilands had a great social life filled with family and friends. They hosted New Year's Eve parties, St. Patrick's Day parties, weddings, birthdays. They celebrated life. Richard and Joan had many wonderful travel adventures near and far — Kenya, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Russia, Costa Rica, Montreal, Quebec City, Italy, France, Hawaii, and national parks in the United States. Needless to say, many photographs were taken! Dick was infirm for the last several years of his life, but his mind and spirit were so strong. He nourished his soul by spiritual reading every day. He spent much of his day in prayer for those he knew were in need. He was loved and cared for by his family and caregivers especially Liz Adams. Friends may call on Friday, March 8th from 4:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m. at the Merton H. Kays Funeral Home, 59 Monroe Street, Honeoye Falls. The Funeral Mass will be on Saturday, March 9th, at 11:00 a.m. at Spiritus Christi Church which is located at Downtown United Presbyterian Church, 121 Fitzhugh Street North, Rochester, NY 14614. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to Friends of Borgne, Inc, PO Box 486, Honeoye Falls, NY — his last fundraiser! The funds will be used to replace a vital area for the children to have a meal each day, to store the band instruments, to house the sewing center, to get after school help, and to hold meetings.

Rochester, NY

"Thursday, February 15, 2024 at age 64. Predeceased by her parents, Stanley and Dorothy Scheer. Survived by her loving husband of 41 years, Stephen; children, Stephanie (Kemor) Lawrence and Travis (Conor) Bleier; grandchildren, Kiella and Kahleel; sister, Ellen Scheer Heath (Pete Spoor); and many nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters-in-law, cousins and dear friends. Suzanne (Suzy Q) was born in Rochester, New York on Valentine’s Day; a natural romantic. She graduated from Webster Schroeder High School and made many friends who would end up becoming lifelong friends whom she loved. Sue met and quickly fell for the love of her life Steve at the age of 20, they tied the knot in the summer of 1983 in the company of their beloved family and friends. In her mid 20\u0027s Sue and Steve moved out of Gates to Wheatland where they would begin the next chapter of their lives together. Welcoming two children, Stephanie in 1990 and Travis in 1993, Sue took on a new challenge in being a mother. Love, compassion, endearment, kindness, fearlessness and strength were all qualities that Sue not only possessed but mastered. She constantly put her children\u0027s needs before her own from the very minute they were born. Sue spent countless hours attending local ice arenas, soccer fields and sports complexes rain or shine to watch her children practice and play. Even being a petite woman, ‘Spitfire Sue’ was never afraid to voice her opinion of a bad call or a great play. After years of recreational skating Sue laced up her skates to play with the \u0026quot;Chicks with Sticks\u0026quot; women’s hockey team. Sue was more than just a mother to her children; she was also a mom to her children\u0027s friends, nieces, nephews and just about any animal that would show up to her home. Whether it be a stray cat or a flock of geese, there was always a bowl of food and water and a full bird feeder nearby. Sue truly was a friend to all who knew her. Sue was an avid musician with an amazing voice; a passion she shared throughout her entire life; singing in several musical productions and the church choir at St. Pius X and St. Columba. She also sang the star spangled banner at the Amerks and Red Wings games. Sue was an animal lover who cherished her horses and participated in several shows taking home blue ribbons in English riding and jumping. Sue loved her cats too, spoiling them to no end. Sue loved to spend her summers on the lake enjoying swimming, sailing, boating and general relaxing with family and friends while watching beautiful sunsets and cooking smores by the campfire. Sue’s ideal evening consisted of playing cards with family and friends, listening to classic rock and sipping on a drink or two. Sue lived her life to the fullest. She battled breast cancer twice in her life but she didn\u0027t want it to define her. She was blessed to have a large support team of family, friends caregivers, medical professionals and fellow fighters she met along the way. Even during the darkest days, Sue was quick to search for a silver lining and keep charging forward. She is truly an inspiration to the people who knew her or her story. Suzy Q will truly be missed and admired but never forgotten. Family and friends may call Thursday, Feb. 29th from 4-7pm at the Leo M. Bean and Sons Funeral Home. Funeral Mass Friday, March 1st at 11am at St. Pius Tenth Church, 3000 Chili Ave. Rochester, NY 14624. Private interment. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester at https://bccr.org/ or by mail at Breast Cancer Coalition, 1048 University Avenue Rochester, New York 14607."
