Life Story for Richard A. "Dick" York

On Saturday, October 19th, surrounded by his loved ones, Dick York passed away peacefully at his home in Ketchum, ID, after battling lung cancer. He was 71 years old. Dick was locally famous for his automotive business, sense of humor, and strong character. Anyone who has lived in the Wood River Valley since the 1970s has at least one story about Dick rescuing them or repairing their vehicle. He is survived by his three sisters Barbara, Carol, and Janet, his son Richard “Rick” Alvin Jr., daughters Keri and Melissa, grandson Tyler James, numerous relatives and dear friends.

Dick was born in Portola, CA, to Claude and Viola York. He spent his childhood on the family farm the Hazelton area, graduating from Valley High School in 1960. He went to college in Salt Lake, UT and in San Francisco, CA. Dick lived all around the Magic Valley before moving to Ketchum in 1974. In those days, he was an accomplished drag racer and worked for General Motors.

Dick ran an Amoco station in Burley where he began his automotive repair and towing career. Soon after, he bought the Amoco service station at the entrance of Ketchum and later opened up Dick York’s Towing just south of Ketchum. Most recently, he established Impact Auto Body in south Woodside. He was always extremely dedicated to his work and exemplified a true businessman. One could always find Dick at The Western Cafe, in later years with the Perry’s coffee club, or driving around town in one of his Ford Broncos.

His family would like to thank all of his close friends who have helped out during his last years. He just never gave up.
