Frank Richard QUIBLE

QUIBLE, Frank Richard "Dick," was taken by our Lord and Savior from his life on earth on Monday, November 9, 2009. Dick Quible was born in the "Sandhills" of Nebraska (Long Pine), on Friday, April 13, 1928, the second son of Lena and Paul James Quible. Dick spent the first seven years of his life in Long Pine, where loving and caring family values were instilled in him and remained for life. In June of 1935, Dick moved with his family (now with little sister) to Montgomery County, Maryland and continued schooling at Cabin John Elementary School, Leland Junior High School and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, graduating in 1945 at the age of 17. In May of 1946, at the age of 18, Dick volunteered for three years in the United States Navy. After basic training at Bainbridge Training Camp, he was transferred to Treasure Island, California, for nine months of schooling in radio and sonar electronics; graduating in March 1947 with a 3rd Class Petty Officer's rating. While in the Navy, Dick also attained the rating of 2nd Class Electronics Mate. While serving aboard the U.S.S. Lloyd Thomas, destroyer, Dick visited such venues as San Diego, Pearl Harbor, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ceylon, Suez and Panama Canals, Persian Gulf, Saudi Arabia, Port Said, Egypt, Rock of Gibraltor, Norway, Southampton, England, and back to San Diego. Upon his return, Dick and the Task Force of which his ship was a part of had completed a world cruise of 51,327 miles. Upon being honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy in May of 1949, Dick returned home to Montgomery County, Maryland to live with his parents while attending George Washington University as a freshman engineering student under the "G.I. Bill." In the fall of 1950 Dick transferred to Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech), graduating in June 1953 with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BS in CE) degree. During his years as an undergraduate student, Dick was a member of Delta Kappa Sigma (now, Delta Kappa Epsilon), serving as the fraternity's president during his senior year. Dick was also elected to membership in Chi Epsilon, the National Civil Engineering Honorary Fraternity and in Tau Beta Pi, the National Engineering Fraternity. After graduation and serving a six-year apprenticeship as a Design Engineer at the National Suburban Sanitary Commission, Washington, D.C., Perrow and Brockenborough, and Austin Brockenborough and Associates, both of Richmond, Virginia, Dick in June of 1959, founded his own consulting firm, Quible and Associates, P.C., in Chase City, Virginia. By 1974, Dick had built his practice of providing the above services to clients across the entire Southeastern United States and areas of the Caribbean, with major branch offices in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Nags Head, North Carolina, and field offices in Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina and Central Virginia. By 1984, Dick had sold or consolidated his many business interests in all geographic areas except North Carolina, settling in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina until retirement at the end of 1997. After retirement and the death of his first wife, Betty Garnett Quible, Dick moved to Blacksburg, Virginia in 1998, where he met and married Sarah Jean Russell, August 24, 2004. Dick became involved in university life almost immediately upon taking up residence in Blacksburg, serving on the Virginia Tech Athletic Fund Board of Directors, the VTAF Executive Committee, the VTAF Audit Committee (1999-2005), and a member of the VT Campaign Steering Committee (silent phase) from 2003 through 2006. Dick and his wife, Jean, served as co-chairpersons for the University Libraries fundraising effort as members of the National Campaign Steering Committee (public phase) from 2006 until the time of his death. In the spirit of "Ut Prosim," Dick and his wife have given generously of their time and resources for the advancement of the goals of Virginia Tech, through provision of funds for Academic and Athletic Scholarships, construction of the Merryman Center, and Lane Stadium, the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech, The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center, the Holtzman Alumni Center, Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets and the Class of 1953 gifting to Virginia Tech. Dick was preceded in death by his mother, Lena Quible, June 10, 1972; his father, Paul James Quible, January 28, 1985; and his first wife, Betty Garnett Quible, July 27, 1998.

Dick's one wish during his life on this earth was that he could reveal, in his own small way, the glory and the grace of God to all he touched during that life. "Grieve for an hour, for the loss," he said, "But rejoice for a lifetime for the gifts of our Lord." Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at the Blacksburg Baptist Church, with interment to follow at Westview Cemetery.

During his years as an undergraduate student, Dick was a member of Delta Kappa Sigma now, Delta Kappa Epsilon, serving as the fraternity's president during his senior year.
