Obituary

Richard (Dick) Francis McCann, a lifelong Janesville resident died on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at Rock Haven Nursing Home. Dick was born on June 5, 1936, the son of John and Alice (Murray) McCann. He married Roberta Ransom on October 26, 1957. Dick graduated from Janesville High School Class of 1954 and from the University of Wisconsin Short Course. He farmed in Rock County for many years, moved to Janesville and became a well-known feed salesman to area farmers. Dick and his co-founder, Jack Iseli, established Jack & Dick’s Feed & Garden, Inc. They built a large customer base in Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. Dick always enjoyed good times at the store, meeting customers and telling jokes and stories of old and recent times of his life. Dick drove a school route for Van Galder Bus Company, as well as chartered trips. He served as president of Janesville Boys Baseball and coached Little League teams for many years. He was a member of St. Williams Catholic Church and ushered for over 50 years. Dick and Roberta wintered in Sun City, AZ for 17 years and had lots of fun ushering at Surprise Stadium during Major League Baseball spring training games in Surprise, AZ. Dick enjoyed time with friends and family, and playing cards, especially Euchre. He was a lifetime follower of Parker High School sports, Wisconsin Badger sports, the Packers and Brewers; he also traveled to many countries.
