    You were a fine, intelligent gentleman. I will very much miss seeing you and talking to you on Sunday mornings. You will be missed by all who knew you at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Henderson, Nevada. Rest in peace, Dick, rest in peace, . . .

      Dick, was my brother-in-law. I am married to Dick’s youngest brother, Tom. Dick was a very intelligent man who had his family and their welfare always in mind! He was never selfish, but tried to be there to help through life’s ups and downs! He was very generous to his nieces and nephews and gave stock to all! He sometimes had a gruff exterior, but ?????? was very important to him! I am grateful to have had him around for his unique personality and his wisdom that he shared with others! May God watch over you until we meet one day in heaven.

    Cheers to the funniest uncle we all had. I was sorry he passed the day before I was to see him in Las Vegas. Our thoughts are with his wife, Aunt Peg

    RIP Dick. I met him when I rented a house he owned and he became a friend, mentor, believer in me, and hero over time. Always a great conversation and kind words with him. My thoughts and prayers for Dick, Peggy, and the rest of the family and friends. I found out on Dec 8 but still in shock.
