Middleton - Richard (Dick) L. Wilkinson, 77, of Middleton passed away February 6, 2019, at his home. Dick was born on January 21, 1942, in Madison, Wi, son of Leland and Virginia Wilkinson.

Dick attended West High School. He enlisted in the Navy and served for 13 years as an electrician during the Vietnam War. He returned to Wisconsin with Connie after the War to start a family and enlisted in the Army National Guard until his retirement from the service. He worked for Sears as an appliance repairman, Walgreens as Maintenance supervisor and Springs Window Fashions.

Dick enjoyed camping with his sons, as well an unexpected passion for golf, which he discovered early in his retirement. He also enjoyed, spending time with friends and family, sci-fi movies and TV shows and tinkering on projects around the home.
