Dick, you were a good neighbor, a better friend, and a very great man who willingly gave his time to others .
Uncle Dick, you are one of the greatest parts of my childhood. I will never forget how we used to go to Tony's and we would order banana splits or how you used to call me your little girlfriend to everybody. I will cherish the times we had telling jokes, laughing, singing, and just plain messing around. I was the little girl who danced with you at the Toys for Tots convention and that is one of the biggest memories of my childhood. You always told me to keep looking for your favorite color "Sky blue pink". I have finally found it. I love you and we will be able to joke and play around like we used to one day. See you in the sky blue pink.
Your niece, Lillian Windsor

Love you, Uncle Dick. You will be missed, but I know you are telling your amazing stories to Jesus now. Rest in peace. You were a wonderful man. I pray for comfort and peace for Aunt Coleen and the rest of our family.
Best to all your family. Say hello to your grandma Edna and Margaret Thompson for me when you see them. Bye Dick and God Bless you. Donna Jean Laugel from Albuquerque, N.M. 87109
It was a true blessing to be a friend of Dick. My husband had the chance to work with him a short time ago at a Toys for Tots Event. It was an honor. Our hearts go out to his family.
To my brother in law over 22 years- I have been missing you since you left home I will always love you, I know you are in heaven with my son, Garrett Ray Van Atten who loved the U.S. Marine stories and dreamed of being one himself...until we meet again...
I was very sorry to hear of Dicks passing. I have know Dick for a lot of years. Dick is a proud Veteran and I salute him. Prayers for the family. God Bless you Dick and thank you for your service for our country! Nels
