Dick was a great guy. I will miss his visits to Nettles Island and walking the beach.

So many fond memories growing up playing bumper pool and ping pong in the basement. Swimming in the pool outback during the summers. Thanks for all the love you showed and I’m looking forward to seeing you in heaven again one day.
One of my favorites from our graduating class from Kettering. A perfect gentleman and friend. I’ll always remember our special picture in our Senior yearbook. Rest now, dear friend.

Remembered as a super nice young man in our WKHS Graduating Class of 1963. So glad to know he remained that way throughout this life. Condolences to his remaining family in their loss.
