Long ago, Dick taught an impressionable kid with daddy issues how to be a better neighbor, a better friend... a better person. When that boy brought his own daughter home, Dick was there and never missed a birthday for 13 more years. The whole family remembers that second birthday, when Dick gave all the kids rides around the yard in his golf cart (which he later donated to St. Dominic's). Thank you for the life, the stories, the kindness, and the inspiration you shared with us. You made this world better, friend.
