Dick was a great co-worker as we worked together at Deere´s. I am sure he is smiling with Bonnie by his side again. May you Rest In Peace. Shiela and Isabella, I know your hearts are hurting now. Fill them with the beautiful memories you shared with him. Prayers are being sent your way.

Dick and I were 1 year in age difference, we both worked at Smity Super Valu in Waterloo while in High School, then worked at John Deere together both in the tool and Die department. Long time friends and only live a few blocks apart in Waterloo. RIP my best friend.
