I have such fond childhood memories of Dick. Being a dozen years younger than he, when he married my first cousin Peggy Stauffacher, I looked up to him with great admiration. Dick was immediately welcomed into the Stauffacher clan, and he accompanied Peggy to all of our reunions and Christmas gatherings. Dick always had the latest camera equipment, which fascinated me, and he patiently humored me as I attempted to entertain with my latest magic tricks. We´ll all miss your warm smiles and wonderful stories, dear cousin. --- John Fritsch, son of Erma (Stauffacher) Fritsch and Frank Fritsch of Monroe, WI.
