Dick loved, as he would say, pushing his pencil. He didn't retire until two weeks before his passing. What he loved most were his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren whenever we got together, which was often. He always put his pencil down to visit with any and all of them. He was such a loving father. He also enjoyed football, including his beloved Notre Dame. A Memorial Mass was celebrated on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at St. Cecilia's Catholic Church. A Celebration of Life Service will be held Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 1:00 PM at St. Francis Xavier School Cafeteria in Fort Myers, FL. In lieu of flowers, please make donation to Hope Hospice.
