I was just a kid when I walked into the little ranch in Littleton. Beth was my gymnastic buddy. I went on a date with Stephen. Now 44+years later I have been a McLocklin for most of them. Somewhere along the line I started to call my father in law Dad. I cherish this with all my heart. He was a wonderful grandfather to my boys. I will miss him so very much

Dick and Trudy were our neighbors for our first 8 years in Littleton, and we could not have asked for kinder, better people to live next to. Over the years, we got to know many members of the family and saw the strong values of the parents personified in the children. We are heartbroken for all of you while celebrating the life of this true gentleman.
