Dick was my boss and my mentor. It was through his example that I strive to be a better engineer. His insight taught me to take a complicated problem, reduce it to it's fundamental elements, and the solution becomes much simpler. I will miss the man, the engineer.

Mr. Allen was from the same generation as my father. It was important to be a dedicated family man. Mr. Allen raised a fine family, and loved his grandchildren. His generation praised hard work and dedication to the job. Mr. Allen was a hard worker and was a true success in his life. Like my father, he was conservative in thought and dress and had a brilliant mind. The last time I saw Mr. Allen was at his wife's funeral. That is the picture I will always keep of him, in my mind. Without Mr. Allen, I never would have met my "sister," Diane, who is the best friend anyone could ever have. Thank you, Mr. Allen.
