July 24, 1928 - Sept. 1, 2017

Richard "Dick" Dale Oyler, 89, of Westfield, passed away Friday, Sept. 1, 2017, at St. Vincent Carmel Hospital.

He was born on July 24, 1928, to Russell Lorenzo Oyler and Lenna Margaret (Spitler) Oyler in Flora.

He grew up farming with his parents and siblings, Fred Oyler, Donna Day and Carl Oyler.

He played for the Flora High School Badgers basketball team. In his senior year, his team played in the Indiana State Finals and he was voted #3 player in the state. He then was chosen as a member of the Indiana All-Star basketball team.

On May 7, 1948, he married Roberta "Bobbie" Leah Foist of Flora. They shared a wonderful life of 69 years of marriage and had three children, Shirley Ann (Oyler) Trent, Dale Eugene Oyler and Alan Richard Oyler.

He attended Western Michigan University before settling in Westfield with his wife and children. For 39 years, he worked for Chrysler. After retirement, he worked part-time at Noblesville Golf Courses and volunteered at Riverview Hospital for 18 years.

He was an avid golfer and bowler, enjoyed going to ice hockey games, and watching sports in his spare time. He was a proud Yankee fan for many years, enjoyed going to the Indianapolis 500 with his father and brothers, and loved a good crossword puzzle daily.

Survivors include his loving wife, Roberta L. Oyler; daughter, Shirley; sons, Dale and Alan; grandchildren, Greg, Lisa, Michael, Jennifer, Kimberly, Daniel and Tiffany; 16 great-grandchildren; 3 great-great-grandchildren; and siblings, Donna and Carl.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded, in death by his brother, Fred.

Visitation is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8, 2017, at Randall & Roberts Funeral Center, 1685 Westfield Road, Noblesville, IN 46062.
