Humway, Richard Anthony, 60, sunset into eternal life on Wednesday September 27, 2017 at Liza’s Place, Wheeling surrounded by his loving family after a brief and courageous battle with cancer.
Sunrise for Richard was on September 6, 1957 in Wheeling, WV., the son of Rose M. Grossi Humway and the late Richard J. Humway.
He and his family are members of Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church where his beloved daughter, Chloe is an altar server. Richard was a regional sales representative for ZEP products and a proud graduate of Wheeling Central Catholic and WVU.
In addition to his mother, he is also survived by his loving wife, Wavoline Charlton Humway, his adoring daughter, Chloe, sisters, Rosemary (Brian) Warmuth of Wheeling and Christina (daughter Amanda) Falk of Great Falls, VA., wonderful in-laws and nieces and nephews. His spirit is survived by the thousands of people whose lives he touched and hundreds he personally mentioned through his active association in a mission of fellowship and change.
Richard lived his life with passion. The loves of his life, Wave and Chloe were and are his passion. A celebration of this man’s life will be held on Friday, September 29, 2017 from 2-4 and 6-8 at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 1400 Eoff Street, Wheeling , where services will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 10 am with Fr.

I met Richard at some meetings and trainings at Zep, over the years, & spoke with him on the phone several times, as I am from San Antonio. He was such a nice guy to talk to and helped me learn some things. I’m so sorry to hear of his passing, may God Bless your Family in this time of loss and sorrow. He will be missed.

Wave, I am so sorry for your and your families loss. I didn’t know Richard but sharing in the spiritual realm as we did at times I can imagine him to be a very special person. Please know that you, Chloe and your family are in my prayers.

Wave and Chloe and all the Humways… I send my deepest condolences. This a great loss. Richard was a fine guy and he helped me and many others along the way. When he spoke of his wife and his daughter, it was like he was on fire.

Dear Rose and family,
On my first job, I had the privilege of working with you in the County Clerk’s office. Your children were small at the time and I remember how you fondly spoke of them so often. I did not know Rick personally but I know how proud you were as his mother. It is so hard to lose a loved one at such a young age. You and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Always keep the faith, it will take you far! Love to you and the family.

Love and strength to Wave, Chloe, and the Humway family. Richard walked the walk and along the way, he paused to help others do the same.
