It was a joy to see Dick at White Rock Lake running as he always had a smile and got to know your name after only an introduction.
What a wonderful person and energy. We will miss him and the person he was.

Dick always had a smile on his face each month at the ASCE meetings. You could always count on him to keep up with the attendance cards each month. I looked up to him for his leadership and guidance for many years. His leadership in ASCE will be missed.
