Richard Friis

December 17, 1941 — April 13, 2022

Richard “Dick” Friis, 80, of Bowie, MD passed away on April 13, 2022.

He was born in Utica, NY on December 17, 1941 to George and Margaret Friis.

He graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a BS in graphic arts and photography and was a member of the Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity.

He had a long career in the printing industry from which he retired in 2000.

Dick always enjoyed hunting and fishing but after retirement, he embraced the art/sport of fly fishing which takes great skill, patience, determination, and knowledge. He tied his own flies and took both national and international trips which he thoroughly enjoyed.  He became a member of the Free State Fly Fishers where he got to share his passion with other members.

He also enjoyed home improvements where his detailed craftsmanship showed in all of his projects.


He is survived by his wife, Mary Ann Friis, his daughter, Dana Friis, his son, Ryan Friis (Erin Derosa), and his granddaughter, Rory Friis.  He always put his family first and will be greatly missed.
