It was a pleasure to know Uncle Dick and he will be missed by us all. He was an interesting man and I always enjoyed chatting with him. All our love!
So sorry to read of the passing of my mentor and friend. It was my pleasure to work for Dick for over 10 years at Jason Empire, first downtown followed by a stint in Overland Park. He was a great and kind gentleman...a boss that was respected by all his employees...mainly due to the respect he gave to all his employees. My prayers go out to Nancy, Michael and Ann and their families. We celebrate a life well lived, and we will cherish the memories forever.
I am grateful to have known Uncle Dick. He was much beloved and the acknowledged patriarch of the family. He was wise, loving and very kind. He was a respected leader in both the Jewish community and in the business community. He was a great lover of art and the walls of his apartment were a tribute to many great American artists coming of age in the era of modernism and post-impressionism. He gave splendid parties and was the glue that bound the family together. He was smart and witty. When he spoke, he gave you his full attention and left you feeling smart, respected and loved. He will be missed.
It was a great pleasure and honor to work for Dick when I joined Jason Empire in 1977. He was very respected by all of his employees and will be greatly missed. I wish his family my deepest condolences.
I had the great pleasure of getting to know Dick from his wonderful affiliation with The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. He was kind and quick to smile. Our thoughts are with the family. He will be missed.
I am grateful for the life of Mr. Levin. Thanks to his service and to the service of others in our armed forces, my family and I have been able to lead our lives in freedom and peace.
