For years I attended Mass with this gentle man. He has always been an inspiration to me. God Speed!
November 1, 2016
Some lives are lived; Dick's was lived richly; his was remarkably unique. What courage it must have taken to walk his paths as pilot; survivor; amputee; spouse; father; CEO; philanthropist; teacher; and, author. I am told he gathered this courage from his faith; that, as a faithful servant, he attended mass everyday and looked always first for God's guidance.

Of the many sections of Dick's life, mine intersected his when he married my lifelong friend Bridget Ann McIntyre Cooley. I saw Dick little. I learned from him immensely. His teachings came to me through Bridget and through watching the depth of their marriage. Theirs was truly a union of love. Dick added new dimensions to my friend's life. Bridget enriched Dick's life beyond measure. So it is right and good, that after years of marriage and many months of Bridget caring for Dick, he would leave this journey with her by his side. Alone, together, in each other's arms; Bridget whispering her lasting words to him. This is how love looks; this is how marriage was intended to be.

This image is but one of the many gifts from watching a life well-lived. God speed, Dick. Guide me in caring for your love and my friend Bridget in the days and years ahead.

It was a privilege to work with Mr. Cooley as my CEO, and during volunteer projects. As recently as a few months ago it was not uncommon for him to be greeted by long-time bank employees as he arrived to his downtown office with a hearty Good Morning, Mr. Cooley! He brought us our motto of Expect Excellence and lived it every day. Godspeed, Mr. Cooley.

Go forth, DEAR BROTHER, upon your final journey.
Go from this world and rest in peace in the presence of God the Father, who created you;
in the love of Jesus our Lord, who calls you his friend,
and in the warmth of the Holy Spirit, who has made his home in you.
In death
your life is now changed, not ended,
and we give you back to our faithful God who first gave you to us.
On our common pilgrimage
we have accompanied you
as far as we can go together.
(St Augustine)
