Obituary for Ryland Henry "Chappy" DuFour

Print
Ryland Henry “Chappy” DuFour, 74, of Warsaw, departed this world on Sunday, November 11, 2018. Chappy worked at H. Warshaw & Company for 47 years as a textile designer, working on everything from swimsuits to drapes to Nomax and Goretex designs for the military. He enjoyed woodworking, talking to people and loved his dog, Itty Bit. Chappy always had room in his life for rescued and injured animals. He loved birds, especially purple martins and even raised a wild owl. As a child, he would even bring snakes home. Chappy was a very loving father and grandfather who enjoyed his annual family reunion dinners and never missed cheering at a ballgame.

He is survived by his wife, Betty Cole DuFour; five sons, Robert DuFour, David DuFour, Russ Lewis, Ryland DuFour and Jay DuFour; two daughters, Bonnie Sue Stokes and Dawn Hamilton; sister, Bonnie Hensley of Passadena, MD; 18 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Chappy is preceded in death by his parents, William Henry DuFour and Carrie Lee Lumpkin DuFour; and brother, Walter DuFour.

A memorial service will be held at 2 pm on Friday, November 16, 2018 at Cobham Park Baptist Church. Family will receive friends from 1 pm to 2 pm at the church prior to the memorial service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Cobham Park Baptist Church Cemetery Fund, c/o Donna Sanders, PO Box 1355 Warsaw, VA 22572 or Alzheimer’s Association at 4600 Cox Road, Suite 130, Glen Allen, VA 23060.
