Such enduring memories - long hours spent on stage working diligently to master the songs with Dick at Avon Players. Fast forward to worship services at FCCC when Dick's charismatic smile and positive attitude drew us together. May the family feel support from our community and be assured Dick is singing with gusto in the Lord's choir. Peace.

My deepest sympathy. Dick was not only my neighbor, but no one could jingle piano keys like he could. I loved hearing him sing with his group “The Grunyons”! What a wonderful family he had and my thoughts and prayers are with you🙏🙏.
