  2. Betty,Rick & Laurie, I am so sorry too read this and so sorry for you all. I have been in the hospital all summer so didn’t know about Dick till tonight. It’s so hard to lose your loved one as I know from experience when I lost Lloyd in April. Things do get better but they are never forgotten. Take care and God Bless you all. I know someday we will all meet again in a greater place.

  3. Hi Betty and Family,
    I just found out about Dick’s passing, unfortunately too late to attend the funeral. I bowled and hunted with Dick for many years. I was bowling with him when he shot some of his 300’s. I traveled and bowled with him at the Empire State Senior Games, and the New York State Senior Tournament. He was a great influence in helping me become a better bowler. I also enjoyed having him come down to Steuben County and hunt deer with me. I think he missed the hunting more than the bowling. He called me on the phone for some long chats after he could not come down any more. He always wanted to know what we saw, and where we saw it. I feel privileged to have spent some quality time with such a fine friend. Rest in Peace my friend.
