Dick died June 4, 2020, of kidney failure in West Palm Beach, Fla. He was 86. He was born Dec. 28, 1933, in Bloomfield, N.J., the only child of Agnes and Herbert Conroy. 

At Princeton Dick joined Cannon Club, was pre-med, and majored in biology. He was secretary-treasurer of the IAA, played club basketball and tennis, and roomed senior year with Al Fasulo, Tom Hall, and Dick Drewes. 

After Princeton Dick attended Cornell Medical College, served as a captain in the Army for two years, and in 1974 became director of the psychiatry department at Northern Westchester Hospital. In 1998 Dick and his wife, Sharon, retired to Palm Beach. 

Dick was an avid golfer, and when golf became too challenging two years ago he learned bridge, joined the Old Guard bridge club, and gave it his usual enthusiasm and good humor. 

He treasured his connections with Princeton, and the postponement of this year’s 65th reunion was a special disappointment. 

Dick is survived by his wife, Sharon; son Christopher; daughter Susan Frith ’86; stepson Scott Fulmer; and grandchildren William and Anna. Donations in Dick’s memory may be made to Class of 1955, Princeton University, Box 46, Princeton, NJ 08540, Attn: Annual Giving.
