He will be missed. One great guy, friend and someone who I truly enjoyed being with whenever we had the opportunity.

The fact that he was so loved and respected spoke volumes to the type of person he was. Many happy memories!

So very sorry to hear of the passing of this very sweet man. I have so many fond memories of Dick over the years--attending my siblings weddings, tennis group shenanigans of my parents. It was also so touching to see him at my Aunt Sally's funeral just a few months ago. I always thought he was so kind, humble and very funny with his dry sense of humor. My thoughts and prayers are with Margaret and the entire family. I am sure you will find a way to honor Dick properly and keep his spirit alive.

Dear Maureen and entire family,

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad.

For all the times, I met your parents and family, there was always beer and drinks happening.

Your Dad had a great run of life, he was 85 years old. May he rest in peace and keep remembering all the good times you all shared with him and your family.

Thinking of you all during this difficult time.

Dick invited me to play golf at Transit Valley, golf not so good but drinks and stories always the best.
