Dick was the most incredible people I’ve known in my life. We were as close as any family could be. He was always kind, thoughtful, a loving uncle to Kelsey. He was an encyclopedia of sports and sports history, sympathetic to Ken’ s Syracuse Orangemen. We loved him beyond words and as proud as we could be in his service to our country. He and Sheila will always be center in our hearts. We, Ken, Carrie and Kelsey are heart broken but know he is with Elvis at an eternal concert.

Many years ago Dick helped me when I was newly married, with a small boy, and trying to get my life back on track with school. He not only helped me through the process of getting my VA benefits, but he hired me as a work study, and became a friend to my family for 37 years. We had an annual bet on the Red Sox/Royals series (whopping $1 per game) and I have to say I owed him at the end of the year more than he owed me.........execpt for last year. I finally took $3 off him about a month ago. We solved a lot of problems together while throwing down "hookers" in the old days, and discussion of sports and family in his final years. I truly loved this man and will miss his voice and his smile. To Sheila, Lynda and I say you were the best thing to happen to Dick and we know you are blessed. All our love to you.Go Sox...............................................................Dave and Lynda Reppert
