So sorry to hear about Mr. W passing. I'm hoping he will be meeting up with my father, Coach Jim Conner of RHS, in heaven. We spent many fun years with Rich. Many at the Twinbrook Tap Room. He and my dad were good friends. I am very sad for your loss and send my prayers for peace.

July 27, 2021 Carol I just learned of Dick´s passing this morning. Your grieve must be unbearable. My life has taken me a long way from Vandergrift and any communication with Dick for eons. Duck has always been a close and dear friend no matter where I was. You pain will subside and he will be with you always.
