We just learned of Dick's passing. He was the Best of the Best. An All American.

Dreher family-
I am so sorry for your loss. Richard was an amazing man that truly changed the life of others for the better. He was the best part of my work day, and he is greatly missed!

Doug and Denny,

I'm so sorry to hear of your father's passing. I remember him at the back door, coming to see how my Dad's wine was coming along--and doing some comparative tasting. He was a lovely man and I know you all will miss him greatly.

Denny and Doug and families - I was so sorry to hear that you have lost your Dad, Grandpa and Great grandpa. I have great memories of both him and your Mom. He must be the last of the old Rowland gang. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Carol (Gray) Lashway

Mr Dreher,
I was sorry to read of the passing of your father. While I never met him, it appears he had a love of life and people.

I am James Marihugh, the son of Mildred Greiner Marihugh of Defiance, Ohio. This note is for Marjorie, Harold (Dick), Elaine, Denny, Doug and famiies
I am sorry that I did not get to see each of you personally, but I have been out of town the last couple of days.
When I was four or five, Rich took me to the Avalon theater where he worked at the time. He had me wait in the theater lobby while he attended to some of his work. Another worker put me outside several times as I was waiting for Rich. I was afraid of being in the big city of Toleto because I came from the small town of Defiance, Ohio. I have no idea what the movie was about, but I know I was scared.
I am retired from AEP corporation after 35 years. I always liked to be in Richard's presence. He was always happy, and I enjoyed listening to his life stories.

I knew Richard growing up through my father. I remember at a young age coming over on Christmas or him busy in the shop or yard. He was definitely a jack of all trades. I hadn't seen him in over 15 years but he still has left a quite an impression on me today. It would have been something for me to know him as a grown man. He was a very kind person, hard worker, and great humanitarian. People aren't like that today...definitely a member of "The Greatest Generation".

Tonight my mother told me about his passing, sorry for your (and all of our) loss. May he rest in peace.

The life of Richard Dreher represents a humble man of great accomplishments regarding technical abilities, athletics, commitment to others, patriotism, work ethics, and charitable deeds; and such a combination identifies someone of great character who is a magnificent role model.

Denny, Doug and your Families,
You men and your Mom and Dad were just about the best part of growing up on Rowland Rd.
While we were all fortunate to have some really fine neighbors there, it was your home and Dad that were extra special. So many memories, all of you made us neighbor kids of all ages feel welcome in your home.

I met your father at Alexis Gardens and saw his kindness for others when vising my mother (Lucille) that is so beautifully described in the Blade article. Sending prayers of comfort to all.
