Loved him! We always had our annual lunch at Mac’s when we’d do his taxes. He loved those Reubens! And always so impeccably dressed! Never met anyone who was so put together! Now that we’ve seen the pic of him at 4 1/2 years old, it looks like he started being fashionable early! He always kept us up with comings and goings of his kids and grandkids. He loved you all so dearly and was so proud of you!

I was crushed to see that Dick had gone to his greater glory. My prayers and deepest sympathies are with the entire remaining family.
Dick worked selling clothes at one time. He was my absolute go to guy when Glenn needed some new threads. I was thrilled every time we had to buy pants or jackets. Richard had great taste, and always complimented us on our purchases. I always thought we were his favorite clients.
I have thought of him often over the years, and he will remain one of my favorite characters that I have crossed paths with.
My prayers are with you today and for days to come.

Every memory I have of Dick involves a smile .
He could talk my wife into buying just about anything when he sold men’s fine clothes so she would insist I get the blazer or suit that Dick told her I needed. In the 40 years I worked with Marge - Dick would call often and he acted as if he had called just to speak with me. I wish I had those abilities as a salesman .
I do miss him

Dear Greg, Kurt, Scott and families

I was quite saddened this morning to receive the news of your dad's passing from our mutual cousin, Joyce Dunley Walker, The wonderful memories I have of my cousin Dick will remain with me forever. He was always so "full of life" and fun to be around, with his warm smile, sense of humor, and infectious laugh!

I was 14 yrs. younger than your dad, and when I'd visit your grandparents, my Aunt Pat and Uncle Lefty, in Aurora, he and your mom would take me out and about. A particular memory was a trip to Batavia to go swimming, followed by a stop at a bar (back when kids were allowed in them) where I had my first EVER piece of pizza! All these years later, that memory remains so present and vivid that I can still taste that wonderful, warm slice as if it was today.... and savor and relish the memory of their company as well! I so loved spending time with him and your beautiful mom, Margie, as they both always made me feel quite special!

I believe I last saw you three at your grandma's, and my Aunt Pat's, funeral. And I am very grateful that I was able to see your dad, after many years, on one of his trips to LaSalle and Aurora when he stopped to visit Joyce and Tom . My husband and I drove out from Chg. to join the three of them for dinner. He was still so upbeat and exuberant, just as I'd remembered him from years before!

I am in the process of framing many old family photos and just yesterday was looking at one from my parents' wedding in Aug. of 1934. Your dad was the ring bearer and must have been around four and a half at the time. What a cutie! I will try to share it here.

My deepest sympathy to all of you and your families, as well as your mom.....whom, like your dad, I remember so fondly.

You all are in my heart and I, too, grieve the loss of my dear cousin, Dick.

With love and deepest sympathy,
Trish Ahern Cancilla and family
