We would like to offer our condolences to Dick's family. I met Dick about 20 years ago and I became his golfing buddy, he soon became my father figure .
We played golf in Florida and Michigan and had some great times. My wife Eddy sent sausage biscuits to the course with me, Dick loved them, he won her heart over time. We both will miss him dearly.
