Directly and indirectly, I enjoyed sharing our common familial interests to the end - decades after initial and always pleasant New Haven interludes. My deepest sympathies. . . .

I met Dick and his lovely wife during the brief period when they were attending Zion Episcopal Church in North Branford. Lives well lived. May they both rest in peace.

My dad and I had a wonderful visit with Dick just a few weeks ago. He mind was so sharp and he kept us completely engaged for over 2 hours. He spoke so highly of his family. He was a man admired by many. We feel so thankful to have known him. Our deepest condolences to your family from George Uihlein and his family.
