Uncle Dick as we remember a person that is so hard to forget I'm sure many will be drawn to the memory of hearing your loud and boisterous voice proclaim your love for your wife in one word. HELEN I'm sure is so happy to have you back together with her. In remembering you I am also drawn to all the great conversations I had with you over the years at various family events. Whenever you would tell a story you would captivate a room but some of my favorite memories were one on one conversations we had about family, sports, or work. You will be missed. Rest easy.

Robyn and family, Since I've known Robyn since second grade, I also had the privilege of knowing her entire family including her dad. Dick would walk into a room and just light everyone up. His beautiful eyes and smile will remain with me forever. I'm happy that Helen has him back. She waited a long time.
