Dick Lesse

First Appearance: Roomies! 18 December 1998

Dr. Richard "Dick" Lesse is Ruth and Howard's father in the Walkyverse continuity.


Ruth took great inspiration from her father - which made it all the more disillusioning when she discovered that he was having an extramarital affair with Mrs. Billingsworth. Unsurprisingly, this led to divorce proceedings.


  • If the Christmas strip is any indication, Ruth's mother got custody of the children after the divorce.
  • No points for spotting the pun.
