Dick was a great guy, funny and a good friend. Saw him a few years ago, well maybe 7?,  in Punta Gorda with Ellie Whisler, Joe Panzarella, Buzz Whisler and can't remember who else.  I know Dick will be missed by all who knew him.  Seems we have lost so many classmates, very sad.

I remember Dick as being a very competitive athlete on all the teams he was apart of in high school. A really fun student who seemed to really enjoy life.  I only saw him at reunions over the years but from the comments on his passing he continued to enjoy a full life of family, work and happiness. A lucky guy who left his good friends and family all too soon.
