Very sorry to read about Dicks passing. My wife Gwen n I offer our sincere condolences to the entire family. Worked with Dick at Green Haven he was an outstanding employee one who could always be counted on. Dick helped in the building of the facility pavilion. He performed most of the masonry work and other work to get the job done. A straight up man who could always be polite and bring a smile to ones face. Thank you for your years of service to your country and state. God bless you Dick and may you RIP. George Schneider
