Richard D. Slaughter of Cisco

Richard D. Slaughter, born March 29, 1945, has gone home with the Lord September 3, 2010, due to sudden complications from a heart condition.

A Christian, humble farmer and rancher of Cisco, Texas and retired from FMC Technology will be missed by all that knew him and loved him. He was a man of honor and integrity in all that he did in life. He was a simple, yet intelligent man that gave fully and willingly to all that was willing to help themselves. Growing up here, in Cisco, he appreciated and loved the ‘country life’, the quiet, peaceful life, the stars in the sky at night, and the friendly people that make up this town. He enjoyed most in life fishing, hunting, working on the ranch, farming the land, enjoying simple things that go unnoticed, and spending time with family and friends. He is an example of what we strive to be and will be remembered through us and our actions.

Richard will be embraced into the Kingdom from parents, the late WH Cooper, Orville and Alleen Slaughter, and from daughter Dovie Paramore.

Richard was a devoted, faithful husband to his beloved wife Dorothy Elaine Slaughter, a loving, compassionate son to Fern Cooper of Fort Worth, an understanding brother to Oscar and Ann Slaughter of Fort Worth, Cherida and Charles Gilbreath of Walnut Springs, Wayne and Carol Conner of Burleson, and Angela and Bill Davis of Ranger, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was a morally grounded, consistent teacher and parent to Virginia Dill of Covington, Stephen Slaughter of Gordon, Dawn and Allan Pelayo of Cummings, GA, and Amber Paramore and Neal Crisp of Cisco, as well as his grandkids Cody Javarone of Lubbock, Mckenzie and Haley Clynch of Cisco, Parker Pelayo of Cummings, GA, and great-grandchild to be, Peanut. Richard also has left behind innumerous friends and extended family that have been forever changed and inspired through knowing him.

Funeral services will be held for Richard D. Slaughter at 2:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 6th at the First Baptist Church in Cisco. Viewing will be from 5 until 7:00 p.m. on Sunday at the funeral home.
