Dick was a great guy. He reminded me a lot of my Dad. I felt connected to him the minute we met. It was a genuine pleasure working with him and his family. He was, and always will be, the perfect embodiment of the "Greatest Generation" Future generations will stand on his shoulders.He will be missed.

So so sorry to hear of Uncle Dick’s passing. I’ll always remember his quick wit & contagious smile. He was always a gentleman with a huge heart. He is now in heaven with the rest of the “icons” era reminiscing about all the good times that were had by all.
