My brother in law for 37 years dearly loved by the whole family. He was an avid card player, playing cards every Sumer Saturday 7pm to midnight. He loved his boat, taking trips up the Grand River. Much love for Richard, will miss him and his mischievous sense of humor.

I have lived next door to Dick for 29 Years, actually the house to the south. I had several conversations with him not so much since Rose passed away but he was always friendly. The biggest thing I remember is when his water line service broke and he asked me if he could hook up to my water service till it was fixed. I agreed miss seeing him outside getting mail.
