We were very saddened to hear of Dick’s passing. We will always remember Dick as a larger than life kind of guy who loved the outdoors, fishing in the summer and skiing in the winter. He will be missed, albeit fondly remembered.

Please accept our sincere condolences, Mia, and to his family and many friends.
