He was a great a great man. We rented from him for a year and he was the sweetest. Half the time he would give us half of the money back to us and told us to take our kids out to eat and get an ice cream :) so sad to hear this. My prayers are with the family!

Dear Breeding Family:

We lived next door to the Breeding family on Oakland Street in Pineville for several years during the mid-1950's. During that time we had many wonderful and memorable occasions which are now fond memories of all the Breeding family.

We were saddened to learn of Dick's passing and extend our condolences and prayers to the entire family.
