Dick was a good friend growing up. His brother Bob and I were close so I was part of the gang when he opened Kawasaki and the bar. Prayers to all.

This very hard, Dick and I were friends for many years, We were two 18 year old's who enjoyed driving fast cars, drinking a few beers and playing pool at the local clubs. We had the kind of friendship we didn't need to talk to each other ever day, but always enjoyed our friendship. To my best friend, rest in peace. Love You.

My memories of Dickie were always fun times. He was my second cousin. I often share words of advice he shared with me when I was just a teenager.
