Many years ago, I worked for the newspaper that shared a space with Modern Printers. Occasionally, I would set type and help Dick in his shop. He was an amazing man. I admired his work ethic, his knowledge of printing history, his patience and friendship. He will be missed by many. My sincere condolences to his family and his brother's family.

I was saddened to see this obituary in yesterday's Statesman. I worked at Modern Printers for a few years, in the early 1980s. The shop held several generations of printing technology, including linotype machines, an old-fashioned letterpress, and drawers of movable type that Dick still occasionally used for flyers and signs. My job was computerized typesetting, but it was still a on a stand-alone machine that spit out long pieces of glossy paper to be cut up and then pasted with wax onto a master page used to make an offset plate.
It was a colorful job. The shop printed everything: newsletters, advertising circulars, restaurant menus, and "No Trespassing" and "No Hunting" signs. It seemed as though everyone in Meridian came in, bringing print jobs or sometimes just to chat. And Dick knew everybody. I have very pleasant memories of working there, and I can still picture him in my mind, listening to other people's stories, smoking his pipe, with a small smile tugging at one edge of his mouth. My sincere condolences to the family. He was a great guy, and a kind and fair boss.

The BEST grandfather anyone could ask for. Your patience and love for me was overwhelming. I see it even more as an adult. You' are so missed but you will never be forgotten. I love you.
