Dick was a volunteer at North Hawaii Hospice on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Dick was a dedicated patient care volunteer. He was a great source of support to the families of patients. Because of his background in law enforcement it was great to have him on hand during our large events. Dick was always lending us hand with his pickup truck when we needed help hauling things or cleaning up after one of our fundraising events. He will be greatly missed by everyone here at our hospice.
Our condolences go out to Dick's family, friends, fellow volunteers and to those that loved and cared for him in his last weeks of life.
Thank you for your service, Dick, you can rest peacefully now.
Aloha Pumehana, Katherine

I met Dick in 2005, while visiting a friend in Hawaii. We became facebook friends but I didn't have much contact after that. So I was saddened to hear of his passing and just wanted to offer my sincere sympathy for your loss. RIP, Dick.
Thanks Dick. It's been an honor to know you. You're a class act. We miss your smile, you're laugh and your sense of humor. You've earned your rest.

We were old friends from Oregon State Police Recruit School days and met often at trials based on Dick's investigations. Many good times from long ago.
