Dick was a good neighbor and friend. I always enjoyed going to visit him when he was home from Florida & we would sit in his driveway talking & watching the traffic go by. Prayers for Dick, Eric, Angie, & Carrie. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

I’ll always have memories of stopping to say hi to your dad when he was sitting outside the garage in his chair. He’d always offer a cold one. Also had the privilege of him being my boss and he was a good one. Hope you all find comfort in the memories. Prayers, hugs, and love to you all. He will be missed.
