My deep sympathy to Dick's wife and family. I just heard of his passing after an illness. I will truly miss my chats with Dick during dog walks in our neighbourhood. Dick was always a happy character and took such good care of his pup pal Harry while still missing his dog Casper.

Thinking of your family during this difficult time. We will miss saying hello to Dick on our walks with our pup. Him and Harry always made the time to stop and say hello! He had so many great stories and always made us laugh!

From the moment my dear friend Tena introduced me to Dick, I understood why she had fallen in love with him. Dick was a kind and gentle man, with a good heart. I knew they would be right for each other, and they have been all these years. To all Dick’s loved ones I say, may your memories sustain you.
