She attended Abilene Christian College and received a degree in psychology. The couple married December 14, 1948 and had two daughters, LaJuana Sue and Donna Lu.
They served in various Churches of Christ throughout their lives and traveled widely. Dick enjoyed bringing visual elements into his sermons before PowerPoint was invented. He used slides extensively to illustrate various concepts. After LaRue passed away, Dick moved to Lakewood Village Christian Care Center. There he met Geneva Sellers. They married in 2015 and were together for four years before Dick passed away.
