Dick is going to missed so very much, I could count on him to mow my lawn and take care of my cats. He was a great neighbor and friend. Gary and him should be exchanging awesome stories of their time together on the farms or doing some project in the garage.
I love you both,

Chuck & Family,

I am so Sorry for your loss. I have so many great Memories of Dick. I remember when he took a bunch of water skiing at Utah Lake. The waves were crazy. But he kept pulling us around.
