Location: Tallahassee, Florida

Richard Eugene Wingerson was truly unique. He possessed many talents including writer, artist, painter, professor, Advanced Toastmaster and, perhaps most of all, humorist. He loved a good laugh and his enviable wit always delivered.

Richard earned a BFA and MA from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan and subsequently embarked on a lifelong career in advertising as a senior copywriter, creative supervisor and vice president at several leading global agencies. He specialized in two of his passions - automobiles and beer - which led to creative stints in Detroit, Melbourne, Australia and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Richard, 76, of Tallahassee, Florida, passed away on Saturday, December 3, 2016. Affectionately known as "Opi" to his five grandkids, Richard is survived by his wife, Maria "Omi" Pirone; two sons, Scott and Kirk; a younger sister, Diana Warner; a younger brother, Bob Wingerson; and two stepdaughters, Deanna Trahan and Denise Carrier.

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on July 21, 1940, Richard was the son of the late Clair Andrew Wingerson and the late Dorothy Mary McLaughlin Wingerson.

A celebration of Richard's full and colorful life will take place in the weeks ahead. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
