My condolences to Dick's family.
I have very fond memories of Dick from when I worked at the Blarney Stone - he was always very thoughtful and kind plus he had a great, dry sense of humor that I appreciated.
Fortunately I was able to meet Dick again in recent years to chat after mutual friends put us in touch.
I shall always remember Dick with fondness.

Our family was in San Diego today and the girls asked to see where Mr. Dick is resting. The girls brought flowers and we laughed as we talked about the dates on his head stone and remembered the story of how Mr. Dick decided to put his own rest date (therego the Nov. 10, 2020). We can hear him say, “I paid for it, so I can put whatever I want on it.” You are missed and will be remembered.

Love The Wong Family

My husband, Andy, and I met Dick at 24 hour Fitness Center. He always talked to the members he knew and those he hoped to know. We attended his Super Bowl Parties and met many of his Marine and Navy friends. My family is saddened by his passing and are glad we are among the people he considered his friends.

Oorah!

Just wanted to share a photo of Mr. Dick during his prime in the Marines. I recall having a discussion with him about it and his experiences with Colonel Kenneth Jordan.

The Wong Family was saddened to hear of Mr. Dicks passing. Our family (Peter, Gladys, Amelie, Adalyn and two dogs (Homer & Harley) were fortunate to call him our next door neighbor for over two years. Mr. Dick was constant in our lives, as we attempted to do yard work, pulling into our driveway from work, or bringing the girls home from elementary school. He lovingly called Amelie & Adalyn the "trouble makers" or "Dweedldee & Dweedledum" and always threatened to cut off their ponytails and make a wig for himself. :-) The girls really loved him and enjoyed the friendly banter about Chesty and if the girls stole his elephant from the driveway. I will always remember our talks about Penn State Football, his time in the Marines, Chesty 1 through 4, and the evolution of Beloit Avenue and it's residents. Mr. Dick was not in our lives for a significant period of time, but he most definitely made an impact on our family and will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace Mr. Dick and God Bless.

Oorah!
We Are!! (Penn State)

Love the Wong Family

I was so sad to hear about Dick's passing. I saw him every day either when he would be walking Chesty or I would be walking my dog. Every time I walk past his house I will remember him "holding court" in front of the garage. We had some great conversations and I always enjoyed his stories of life in the Marines. He was so good to my dog...nicknamed her "fur face" and gave her more treats than she deserved. He was a presence in the neighborhood for so many years and will definitely be missed by all who were lucky enough to call him neighbor and friend. Rest in Peace and hoo-rah! Cathy Ganze
