Such sad news. Dick always treated me with kindness and respect. My sympathy to all of the family. It is hard to lose someone but he left a pretty good crew to carry on the legacy. May you find comfort in your memories and among family and friends. Dick was more than a boss he was a friend.

Bob…Bill…Tom…Jim, I left a remebrance on the Legacy site, but if you haven’t seen it, I wanted to relay to you all (and your families), how saddened I’ve been to hear of Uncle Dick’s passing. He was a great man…well thought of by so many. I have so many great memories of him….he was my favorite uncle & even tho’ I hadn’t seen him in quite a while, I thought of him OFTEN & will miss knowing that he is no longer with us. If my Mom could speak to us now, I’m sure she’d say…”He was my favorite baby brother”. My thoughts, prayers & love are with you now.
