Barb, I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad was one of the good guy's at WE. He will be missed by many. Hope to see you soon.

Mr. Dick was one of the nicest men on the planet. He will be missed dearly.
Dick was my first Section Chief at Cedar Street in Newark when I returned from the service in 1959. I had the utmost respect for him for he treated me and others in kind. He was a true gentleman. As he was in my thoughts many times over the years, I will remember him now in my prayers.

In my 27 years at WeCo I never was given the opportunity to work for Dick, but I do know he was at the top of most everyone's "Supervisors I'd like to work for list". .........Reb Blower
I know this has been a very difficult time for you. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts. I hope good memories of your dad will bring you comfort.
I always held Dick in the highest regard, one of the finest men I knew, it was a pleasure to know him and work with him...Bob and Cindy Buckheit
Barb & Family,
All my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your dad. The generation that nurtured the "young ones" at WE ER - Cockeysville; he was dedicated to his career, always there to lend a hand, ear. One of the greatest generation of a never to be seen again era.
Peace to you all,
Bob & Carolyn Somers
I will always remember Dick as one of the "real good guys" during our years working together in Cockeysville. He represented the engineering org with professionalism and sensitivity. I was privileged when he agreed to work with me in HR where he did an outstanding job.
I consider myself lucky to have had him as a business contemporary and a friend. .....May he rest in peace......Amen
I am sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. I looked through the photo gallery and it brought back memories of High School and hanging out at your house. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Anne Cornell Haddox - Atlanta
Dear Barbara, Rick and family
I was so sorry to hear of Dick's passing. Dick was my immediate supervisor and training instructor when I started in engineering at Broad Street in Newark, NJ. Being a young kid just out of high school and having lost my dad a couple of years before Dick gave me a lot of help and support when I first started. He was also my supervisor when I transferred to Cockeysville at the age of 20. I owe him more than you could know. He was not only the boss but also like a father to me. I will always remember him and all fond memories of Newark, Cockeysville and especially bowling (Wednesday, Friday and mixed on Sunday with your mom.)
Love and sympathy
I remember Dick with much fondness. I who had absolute zero intrest in baseball won two tickets in a charity raffle to an Oriole game at Memorial Stadium. Knowing that Dick was indeed an avid fan, I offered him the tickets. He countered with an invitation to dinner at his and Snookie's home before joinging me in my first ever Professional Baseball game.
Dick was indeed a gentleman of the first order. While corporate life is not without fierce competition, he alway played fair. I loved him for that and I miss him already.
I knew Dick from my days selling printing paper for Mudge Paper Company and he was a fine gentleman, always had a smile on his face and a friendly personality. I'm sure he will be missed by all those who knew him & loved him. My sympathy to the family.
I worked with Dick during the late 70s. As a supervisor he was wonderful. As a person he was the best. Condolences to the family for their loss.
Barb, I am sorry for the lost of your father. You and your family have my prayers for strength and grace during this very difficult time.
One of the nicest people we worked with at Western Electric in our early years there. Our sympathy to the family.

Barb, Rick and family.......I'm so sorry to hear your wondeful father has passed. He was a very sweet man. Please know you're in my thoughts and prayers.
