THE PASSING OF A PATRIOT
C' I. -founder Dick Cabela-a retail pioneer, avid hunter and strong
National Rifle Association supporter-passed away Feb.  at his home in Sidney, Neb.
Cabela, , co-founded the retail giant
Cabela's with his wife, Mary, and brother, Jim, in
 with an advertisement in a Casper, Wyo.,
newspaper offering " hand-tied flies for ."
They only made one sale through that first ad.
Subsequent efforts, however, proved
more fruitful. Today, Cabela's is a . billion
company, with  retail stores in the United
States and Canada, and a worldwide catalog
and Internet business.
Dick Cabela's love of hunting, especially
in Africa, was legendary. In , Cabela's
became one of the first companies to exceed
Dick Cabela (1936-2014) with  million in  donations. His support for
the association was easily summed up in a
his wife, Mary.
 interview, when he was asked how he
responds to people who say they love to hunt but aren't members.
"I'd say, 'How are you going to hunt without a gun?'" he responded. "These guys
[the ] protect your right to own a gun. And that's what it's all about.
"Some of these countries have no freedom, and a lot of it comes right down to no
right to bear arms."
Dick Cabela garnered numerous accolades in his lifetime, including induction into
the Nebraska Business Hall of Fame in  and the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame
in . In , Dick was honored with the Safari Club International's prestigious
.. McElroy Award for his dedication to preserving and promoting the heritage and
tradition of hunting. In , Dick and Jim received the Golden Bullseye Pioneer
Award from  Publications.
He is survived by his wife, Mary, and their nine children and their families; as well as
two sisters and three brothers.
