I (Cathy) worked for Dick for many,many years at Satellite Computer Services. Dick was always a kind,considerate man with a sense of humor and a gentle soul. I will miss you terribly, always looking for you to come in on Thursdays to do our deliveries.
Kelly knew Dick for about 9 years and felt the same about him.
May you now have peace, free of worry and pain.
Love to Pat and the family

So sorry to hear about Dick. Patsy, I'll call you in a week or so when the kids have gone back.
Dick's favorite story to tell us was when he mistakenly ended up on Overhill Road when my parents were having a big block party. He was so happy to be invited and stayed till 6:00 AM. Sound familiar?
Thinking of you,
