We are so sorry of your loss John, Trish, Cheryl and family,

We shared many wonderful times over the past forty plus years with Dick. No matter what we did. Play cards, golfing , bowling, hunting or fishing we always had a lot of fun. One of my first hunting trips I went on with Dick to Gil's place in Pembine was an experience. After many stops we arrived nine hours later which is normally less than two hours away from Green Bay. Last June we were able to enjoy our annual Canadian fishing trip with Dick. We were so fortunate that Dick was able to join us. He did catch one of the biggest walleyes of our group.

Last May we enjoyed a few days visiting with Dick and Cheryl . Dick and Cheryl took us around the subdivision on his golf cart. It was wonderful southern hospitality.

Dick was a dear friend and will sadly be missed. Dick may no longer be with us but we will always have many fond memories of the times we spent with him.

Deepest Sympathy,

Dennis and Marlene Gorczany

Jon and Tricia,
I really wish Tanner had more time to get to know his Grand Father.
I am positive he would love him as much as you do!
Do everything you can to keep his memory alive for Tanner!
I know so much about your Dad by knowing how great his children are!
It is obvious how much you love your dad and how much he loved you!
We love you so much!
Ted and Donna

Tricia & John- So sorry to hear about your dad. I hadn't seen him in many years but, always thought fondly of him. He was always very good to me (as well as my sister and brothers). He took me to several Packer games over the years and we always had a good time. Your dad is also the one who taught me how to play golf. He was always patient about it too, even if I was taking out a major divot with his new irons!

I know its been a long time, I just felt I had to say something. A man like your father deserves that. He was a great man.

All my best,
