Dick and I were neighbors and friends
from an early age in Bellevue. We remained in contact through the years,
even though I left PA after high school.
I have many fond memories from our
growing up years, and at BHS class
reunions, which he worked so hard to
I will miss you, old friend. Rest in peace.

Dick Schramko and I were roommates our freshman year at Slippery Rock. We spent they year together in Room 117 of Patterson Hall. We were both Social Studies majors so we had a number of classes together in addition to sharing a room. Dick was a funny, droll guy and we liked talking about history and our assignments. At the end of our Freshman year, Dick joined Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity and moved to their house. I had a new roommate the next few year before I joined a different fraternity and moved downtown. It was funny that Dick went to Bellvue HS which was a big football rival of my high school at the time. After we graduated, Dick went on to have a long teaching career at Sto-Rox and I taught at South Park...again...a football rival for many years. I have often thought of our first year at SR and how we helped each other adjust to this new life in college. A great roommate..a great guy.
