My sincere sympathy goes out to your family. I always enjoyed working and socializing with Dick over the years. We lost touch in the later years after retiring and moving on. One happy memory that I will keep is our sailing trip to the Virgin Islands. The whole time was complete laughs. Happy, Happy memory!

It was a pleasure to have know Dick and my sincere sympathy goes out to his brother and children. It's a difficult time to loose the people you love. Know that there is someone in Elkhorn, WI thinking of you.
