My deepest sympathy to you, Nancy, and the entire family. I remember my late husband, Larry's, friendship with Dick while working at Polychrome. Dick always had a smile and good words for everyone. God be with you. Marilyn

I worked with Dick at Polychrome. I was a shy, quiet 20 year old and I was working with Joe and Dick. (Mind you if you know me now - I am Not quiet). It didn’t take long before I realized that it was a great place to work and Dick was a wonderful human being. He held “court” every morning. Everyone anyone could go in his office and chat about anything. And dick always had a funny story or we heard about his AC trips or his latest vacation plans to St Thomas. I eventually left their department but always went to “DB”’s office after my coffee to check in. When my dad passed away suddenly, he held me and was a wonderful comfort to me. When his first granddaughter was born I made her a ceramic teddy bear and he was so appreciative and years later called to tell me that his granddaughter was Having a baby and she still had the teddy bear. (😊. When Polychrome closed - we all knew we would be receiving calls from Dick to check in or tell us a story or talk about his trips. I went to some of our dinners but life got in the way 😥. I loved and cherished those calls. I especially loved chatting around the holidays- and knew after I mailed out my Christmas cards I was sure to get a call. I wish I knew that the last time we spoke was going To be our last call - I would have Stayed on the phone longer. Dick was such a special person who loved his family with all he had and always had time for friends. I have a special place in my heart for him and I am So thankful that he was a part of my life. Rest easy Dick 💔

My funniest memory of Dick, was when Polychrome was closing.
He was not just 65 yet, so he was hanging in to retire. Aside from the Engineers - (John, Barry, Ray, and Dennis) we were the only people in the building, so we played black jack of course! I think he was counting cards because he kicked my ass. I owed him a lot of money. Never saw anyone laugh as much as when he clobbered me hand after hand. I was 30 years younger. I said “you can’t take money from me, I’m just a kid”. He told that story for years. My greatest memories will be the phone calls, and all of our reunion dinners over the last 20 years. He had a positive outlook on everything, and genuinely the happiest guy I know. Loved his family so much. Spoke of them ALWAYS. There will never be another Baviello. I will miss him terribly, but we will continue to hold our dinners, and the next one we will toast once again to a life taken too early. 😇 “Lindy Logue”.
