Dick is was someone you could never forget. He was always doing something funny or saying something funny. I was lucky and blessed enough to be part of this family for many years along with my son Jason. His whole family made us feel comfortable from the first time I met them. Even though he wasn’t Jason’s grandpa he and Barb treated him like they were his grandparents and treated me like a daughter instead of a daughter-in-law. He got Jason’s first haircut, I remember that well! We had many vacations together and the Christmas breakfasts will always have a special place in my heart.. I will always love Dick and remember him and will love Barb and the rest of the family forever. There is always a special place in my heart for you all. Love Denise

I have stored away many great memories that you were a part of. Hunting trips, fishing trips to Leech Lake in Minnesota, the Wabash River, teaching us things in the garage, letting us ride in the back of the truck, etc. I can’t help but look back on all those years and smile. Thank you for being such a part of my early years. You will be missed and not soon forgotten. Until we meet again...
