Tell City, Indiana
Richard C. “Rick” Mallory, 65, passed away on December 23, 2021 at his home, surrounded by his family, after a courageous battle with cancer.
He was born in Tell City on May 19, 1956, son of Charles and Clara (Ward) Mallory, who preceded him in death.
A graduate of Perry Central High School, he was united in marriage on January 24, 1976 to Peggy Sommer at St. Augustine Catholic Church, where they were both members.
Rick retired after 36 years with the Indiana State Highway Department, as a unit foreman. A true native of Perry County, he enjoyed trapping, hunting and fishing. Rick could often be found in his vegetable gardens and canning with his children. He also enjoyed making maple syrup, going to flea markets and auctions at Dixon’s, watching westerns and NASCAR. But, most importantly, Rick loved to spend time with his family and his many friends who were known to refer to him as “Jesus”.
Surviving is his wife of 45 years, Peggy Mallory, Tell City; children, Tabby Goffinet (Glenn), Tracie Harrison (Jason) and Tammy Harrington (Byron) all of Tell City; a sister, Cathy Reece (Steve), Louisville, KY; grandchildren, Mallory and Molly Goffinet, Paige and Jase Harrison; mother-in-law, Mary Sue Sommer, Tell City and his beloved dog, Spike Lee.
