I met Dick about 17 years ago, via his daughter, Paula. He was always kind and communicative, which made it easy to get to know him. He showed interest in learning about the people around him and listened to what they had to say. I will remember him fondly as the best pinochle partner ever and as an accepting, friendly, and gracious man. He always had a smile and was quick to laugh. He will be missed.
