His spirit lives within his loving wife of 55 years, Teddy Pancol Bohnenkamp.

He was the proud father of his daughter, Rebecca (Scott) Vannatta of Anderson; and his son, Dr. Richard L. (Ric) Bohnenkamp, Jr. of Greenwood. He was compassionate and idolized his five grandchildren, Julia Seitz (fiancé, Tyler Dickerson), Jeffrey Seitz, Jason Vannatta, Sarah Bohnenkamp and Kelly Bohnenkamp. Extended married family surviving are sisters-in-law and brother-in-law, Mary Pancol Raikos, Marguerita Pancol Alder, Soteria Pancol Nicholson and George G.

Dick and Teddy moved to Anderson where he worked and served the community. They were members of the First United Methodist Church.
