Dick was a close friend of my grandfather, uncles and father so I knew him all my life. My earliest memories are of him with the tie and hat taking care of us when we pulled in. A kind and gentle man. He will be missed-Deepest condolences to his family and thanks for his long and good life!

I posted this on Facebook the day Dad passed away:

My dad, Richard Lyman, gently passed away today at the age of 96 and a half. He was a good man, Christian, Eagle scout, pilot, flight instructor, Navy veteran, Mobil gas Economy Run driver, SCUBA diver, honest businessman. If you're allowed to do your favorite things in the afterlife, he will be flying a B-24 all day long while eating meals from Moro's of Allen Park. I always loved this picture of him from the Willow Run bomber plant in WWII.

I want to thank Kirk and Lawrence for sharing their memories of my Grandfather. Your kind words mean so much, I am grateful for them. Like many Grandchildren, I remember visits to my Grandparents as being magical in my youth. My brothers and I would often be lucky enough to stay with Dick and Maxine for a week each summer. During those weeks, they would absolutely spoil us. Grandma was the best cook. We would play pool and ping-pong in the basement and dance to the 45 records they had. When my brothers were old enough, they would go to work with Grandpa at the gas station and Grandma and I would shop and visit with her friends. When Grandpa would get home from work, we would go out to eat at the many restaurants that he was well-known at. Grandpa would always eat a salad and fresh fruit, but insist we have dessert. He did always say "well, it's like this" and it was the greatest when you would get him laughing so hard that he would tear up. As I got older, Grandpa and I had some conversations that I will never forget. He told me that he was proud that I had found a career that I loved and that not many people are blessed enough to have that. We had many conversations about how wonderful it is to have a real passion for our work and that connection will stay with me forever. Grandpa was a hard worker, but he loved what he did and the people he worked with. He lived a full life and was loved many so many.
