So sad to hear of Dick's passing. Much too young. We shared many good times when we were young. We shared an apartment while Dick was in the academy. I regret that we lost touch thru the years. He was a good man. My condolences to the family. Joe

Dick was a wonderful friend to my family! My Daddy always referred to him as "little brother". He worked with my Mom at City National Bank. I am sorry we lost touch over the years but he was always in our hearts! My thoughts and prayers are with his family. A truly wonderful man!! Marsha (Brown) Banks
