Dick was a dedicated family man, & a legendary professional who was respected by all who knew him; also, a good friend to me in times past.
My sincere & deepest sympathy to the Karch family in their very sad loss.

Sending prayers for strength and peace to the Karch family. Your Dad was an inspiration to me. He shared his story about what it was like to be an engineer. As a young woman, his encouragement and willingness to share his insight was the catalyst to a 34 year career in engineering. His life touched mine and many more in so many positive ways. God bless his soul and may he Rest In Peace.
So sorry for your loss.
