I knew Dick well and loved the guy. He, the late Charlie Cook and I had season tickets to the Browns in ‘79 and 80. I’ll always remember his laugh. Not only does he come from one of the best families in Johnstown, he was a total gem of a human being. I’m out of town and can’t attend the viewing, so I wanted to extend my sympathy to the family and especially his wonderful daughter, Diane.

Dick was truly an angel to so many of us. I will always treasure his smile and kind words. No one was ever a stranger to him. And who can ever forget his beautiful talent of whistling! Dick loved all of his family very much. He is one of the best friends I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Rest in peace dear friend.
