I just found out about your passing Dick, my condolences go out to you Geraldine , Jill and Joy, I have been reminiscing as I digitize my fathers past history, I think of Dick often, like being so finicky about airplane, all the visits to anchorage on his way to lake talquina. There are so many fond memories of Dick that I must add them to my archive of memories forever. May God bless your family on earth, and you get together up there with the ole gang, fly low and slow...see at the end of the runway!
Dick was my first supervisor (in 1955) and I always held very high regard for his ability, competence, and kindness. I regret I just now learned of his passing.

Dick's patience with novice fishermen (me)never discouraged me when he caught the winning salmon at 9am Friday. We both took interest in owner built homes. I will miss him.
Dick and I had some great fishing and hunting experiences together. Some of the best king fishing I had was with Dick in Tee Harbor. Dick will be missed greatly. Roger Walling
I only met Dick once, but liked him immediately. We had some great conversation at Telequana Lake.
