Al Richard ‘Dick’ Moldroski

Al Richard “Dick” Mol­droski, 85, of Rotonda West, passed away peacefully of natural causes Wednes­day, Dec. 4, 2013.

He was born Aug. 27, 1928, in Terre Haute, Ind., and spent most of his career as an Artist and Art Pro­fes­sor in Charleston, Ill., at East­ern Illi­nois Uni­ver­sity before retir­ing to Rotonda West in 1999. He proudly served his coun­try dur­ing two tours of duty with the U.S. Army in Ger­many as part of the Army of Occu­pa­tion and later in Korea with the 62nd Con­struc­tion Engineers.

He came home to work on his education, receiv­ing a BA in art and edu­ca­tion from Indi­ana State Uni­ver­sity in 1954. It was while at ISU that he met his wife, Martha Nixon, whom he mar­ried on Dec 19, 1952. They moved to Lans­ing, Mich., while he pur­sued his master’s degree in art at Michi­gan State University.

He taught at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Ill., and Glenville Col­lege, Glenville, W. Va., before com­plet­ing his MFA at the Mary­land Insti­tute of Art in 1968. He found his niche as pro­fes­sor of art, teach­ing at EIU in Charleston, Ill., from 1963 until he retired in 1993. Al spent many happy years encour­ag­ing his stu­dents to expe­ri­ence art in other parts of the world and led many stu­dent trips to Europe. Dur­ing his career, he was an artist-in-residence at St. Cloud Uni­ver­sity, St. Cloud, Minn.; exchange pro­fes­sor at the Portsmouth Poly­tech­nic, Portsmouth, Eng­land, and vis­it­ing artist at WRSP Zak­lad Plas­tyki, Siedlce, Poland.

As an artist, Al had paintings and other works of art in art exhibitions all over the coun­try, includ­ing the Chicago Art Insti­tute, Penn­syl­va­nia Acad­emy of Fine Art, the Detroit Museum of Art and many oth­ers.

Dur­ing his retire­ment, he was actively involved with his local VFW Post #10476 and Amer­i­can Legion post 113.

He also created a website devoted to the veterans of the 62nd and 85th Engineer Construc­tion Bat­tal­ions dur­ing the Korean War, for which he was rec­og­nized and inter­viewed by CNN in 1999. This work helped recon­nect the men he had served with in Korea, and he greatly enjoyed the yearly reunions that followed.
