Richard Nicholas Urschel, 87, of Baldwinsville passed away on Wednesday. He drove school buses for Baldwinsville School District, eventually becoming the Director of Transportation, where he worked for over 40 years. During that time he worked on various construction projects, owned a chicken farm, and most notably, owned and operated “Richard’s Ole Timer” at Three Rivers. Richard had a legendary wit and his wry comments will be greatly missed. He is predeceased by his wife, Jane; daughter, Kathleen; and brother, Charles.

He is survived by his children, Lynn (Steve) Hyman, Richard (Brigitte) Urschel, Randy (Sue) Urschel, and Maryjo (Scott) Reinhart; brother, Patrick (Marcia) Urschel; eight grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26, 9:30 AM, at St. Stephen’s Church, 469 Main St., Phoenix, NY. Burial will follow at Phoenix Rural Cemetery.

The family would like to thank the staff at Menorah Park, Terrace Unit, for their attentive care.

Never forget this man! He would raise that one finger on the steering wheel of the School Bus if you waved to him. He was a wonderful Boss, caring man of few words most of the time! Rest well Dick ~ you will be missed. Vic and Betty DeJohn
