Richard “Dick” Adlam Dando, 96, of Franklin, NC, passed away at home on Wednesday, August 26, 2020.

Dick was raised on a farm in Skaneateles, NY. He was the son of the late Raymond Shettleworth Dando and Alice Churchill Adlam Dando. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Helen Wilmot (David) and Kathryn Murphy (William); and a son-in-law Kenneth M. Funchess, Jr.

He had a long career as a chemical engineer with St. Regis Paper Company in several locations, primarily in Jacksonville, FL. While in Jacksonville, he worked as a “troubleshooter” in water treatment at company plants in the U.S. and Canada.

His outside interests were trout fishing in northern New York streams and bass fishing on the St. Johns River in Florida. He also enjoyed trips across the United States with friends and family.

He interrupted his college education to enlist in the U.S. Army. After basic training, he attended advanced engineering school at Auburn University in Alabama. He served in the U.S. Army as a Staff Sergeant in the 14th infantry regiment, stationed in Europe during WWII. After his discharge from the service, he obtained his Bachelor's degree in chemical engineering at Clarkson College of Technology in Potsdam, NY.

He was a member of the congregation of All Saints Episcopal Church, St. Agnes Chapel in Franklin, NC.

Dick is survived by his wife of 71 years, Joan Nuffer Dando; two children, Mark Alan Dando (Kathryn) and Sue Dando Funchess of Shiloh, GA; one sister, Muriel Dando of Binghamton, NY; and several nieces and nephews.

No services have been planned at this time.

In lieu of flowers, a donation in Dick's honor can be made to Care Partners Hospice, 170 Church Street, Franklin NC 28734, or to a charity of your choice.

Macon Funeral Home is handling the local arrangements.
