So Sorry to hear this news..
We are truly sorry to hear this…Dick was a fellow church member and always had a smile for everyone…He helped our son and other teen boys with
jobs when they were in high school…we really appreciated that…taught them lots…May God be with Shirley and the family during this time and in the
future. He will be missed.
To the Ammon family,
I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember him an Shirley being such good Christian role models at Elsmere Baptist Church as I was growing up as well as his mom an dad teaching us too. May God bless you in this time of mourning….l

Mr. Dick Ammon
Mrs. Ammon, Pam, Greg and family,
I cannot express how sad I was to hear the news that he was in the hospital and then his passing. And I don’t know where to begin when you have known someone your entire life and it seemed like I spent 1/2 of my adolescent and teen years in their home! I loved him like a second father who always had great advice and a wonderful sense of humor! He always had something funny to say about every topic under the sun, except when Greg drove the tractor into the lake! He really wasn’t laughing then, he was a little angry! And when that happened everyone scattered!!! But he was really the biggest sweetheart and the epitome of a true southern gentleman! He loved his wife so much, along with his children and grandchildren . He set a high standard to follow and worked very hard every day! He practiced being a Christian better than any minister I know! May you Rest in Peace, and remember when you get to Heaven, God is the Master of all landscapers, but I am sure you will be redoing most of his landscaping for Him!!! I cannot make the serviced tomorrow because of work and a meeting that I cannot get out of attending , just know that I love you all and you are in my thoughts and prayers! Love, Cheryl Saalfeld
Mr.Dick Ammon was a good friend and fellow Nurseryman of my Dad,Ed Knox.He thought the world of him.I’m a Nurse at Gateway and I got to reminisce about the days he knew my Dad.They both made the world a more beautiful place to live.He will surely be missed! My heartfelt prayers,deepest sympathy and utmost respect to the Ammon family.God Bless!
So sorry to receive this news. Dick was a real gentleman and a true ambassador for the nursery industry. He will be greatly missed. He was one of my last contacts with my own Dad’s contemporary’s within the industry. My Dad & Mom had some great times with Dick & Shirley in Atlanta at the SNA Meeting & Trade Show in Atlanta.
Beth & I send our condolences to all the Ammon family.
