I have many fond memories of Dick, whether it be him telling a hunting story, baseball story or listening to him boast about his wonderful grandkids and how proud he was of them. I have kept a few of his sayings and always will think of him as the kind, caring man he was. Rest in peace. My thoughts, condolences and big hugs to the family.
