The first time I met Dick was at a restaurant where my husband and I were meeting my son’s girlfriends parents (although I knew someday they would be his future in laws.) I sat next to Dick and I liked him immediately. He was full of life, jokes and love for his family. He told me that he loved his family more than anything is the world, and he told me that every time I saw him since that dinner 7 years ago. I am incredibly sad for everyone to lose such a loving husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather and friend. I will hold you all close to my heart and thoughts.
My heart is heavy for the loss of such a wonderful and loving man. His love and devotion for his family shined bright. He will always be in our hearts. May his memories of love and laughter bring you comfort in times of sorrow.
