I met Dick when I first started working at the Richwood Civic Center in 1998. Always equipped with a smile, Dick and Lois were ever willing to help out. Community Meals wont be the same without Dick at the "Men's" table (the loud table because they all suffered from hearing loss). My sympathies go to his family. Great guy!

Many happy times were spent at lunch at the Greene with Dick and buddies. Lois was
my neighbor when young so we had happy
occasions for remberance.
