To Dick and family,

I remember your father well on football trips to Austin and Rochester when we played at STA. He was wonderful man.

Jim O'Connell

Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed. You will always be remembered for your great contributions in helping preserve the city you so loved.

Laurie, sympathy to you and your family. Your father was a remarkable man and I am so pleased to have gotten to know him in my time at RCHS. He is the reason I first dyed my hair red! Remember all the joyful times as you celebrate a life well lived.

To Laurie and all of your family, my deepest sympathy to all of you. Dick was a very special soul and a wonderful mentor for me as I chaired the RCHS board. He was a remarkable man. I am sorry to learn that he has left us.

Love, Joanne

My father, John Sedlacek, was a driver for
Murphy Trucking in the '60s and always spoke
very highly of Mr. Murphy. One of my prized
possessions is a photo of him presenting my
dad with a safe-driving award. Thoughts and
prayers are with all of you. Carol Ann Sedlacek

Leo and Norma Simmer's family extend our sympathy to you and your family. Our parents always talked fondly of their time at your parents place on Lake Superior. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
