Richard Alfred Furst, son of Harry Furst and Magie Furst, peacefully passed away on Monday, Jan. 3, 2022. Richard graduated from W.T. White High School in 1972. He then attended the University of Texas at Austin, majoring in economics. He was a member of the AEPi fraternity, where he made lifelong friends. After college Richard was first employed by Commercial Metals Co. Thereafter he formed his own business, Furst Metal Co. He then pursued a career in the sports agency business, where he lived out his dream of scouting and prospecting NFL players. He enjoyed all sports, especially football, baseball, running and skiing, and loved nothing more than watching and playing with his two sons. He was a lifelong Cowboys fan. His sons, Augie and Manie, were the joy of his life. Richard loved the Almighty and lived his life in devotion to G-d. The Jewish holidays and family get-togethers were the highlights of the year. The family received loved ones and friends for visitation and burial services at Shearith Israel Memorial Park in Dallas on Jan. 5. Richard is survived by his mother, Magie Furst; his sons, Augie Furst and Manie Furst; his daughter-in-law, Shannon Furst; his granddaughter, Blakelee Furst; his sister, Robin (David Boden) Furst; the mother of his children, Debbie Furst; along with many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Harry Furst. If desired, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance, Hadassah or Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Services were entrusted to Stephen B. Blend through Dallas Jewish Funerals.
