I was fortunate enough to work for Dick at the Wyandotte Municipal Services Power Plant as a young man just getting out of the NAVY and still a lil green in the trade. As plant Mansger Dick had a different veiw/approach and urgency in some cases that I didn’t understand at that time. But now that I’ve been in the trade a lot longer now and have been put in charge of a few projects,I get it now. I wish I’d of had the opportunity to thank him for my years of experience at Wyandotte, but he now knows. He was an extremely smart and creative man with various systems at the plant. I’m sure he’ll be missed by many. Condolences to his family and friends. Duane Hanson.

I am deeply heart broken to hear that Richard has passed. Regrettably, I didnt get the opportunity to know Richard very well but he definitely made me laugh and it was a pleasure to talk with him. The first thing he said to my daughter and I spoke volumes about his character and how much his family meant to him. I throughly enjoyed reading his eulogy. I can clearly see, he was truly one of a kind, and that he left behind a great legacy that his family and friends will never forget. I am thinking of you all, and praying that you have peace and comfort in knowing, Richard has returned home to our Father in Heaven. Sending my sincere condolences to all of you during this difficult time. Jana

Dear Kathy, Helen, Charles, Monica and David, I remember cousin Richard from our childhood days in Wisconsin. He had a colorful personality, like his Dad, and even then you could predict he would have a bright future as a very intelligent person with an inherited work ethic. Such a wonderful account of his many accomplishments! Even though he passed far too young to further enjoy his children and grandchildren, you can be immensely proud of the gifts he has left behind for all to admire. Kathy (Arens) Uecker, Appleton, WI
