The news of Dick’s passing makes us sad. Dick was our neighbor in Fairborn for 20 years, and we enjoyed many good visits with him, his mother and Randy. He was a devoted son, a loyal worker, and a real optimist. He loved his music, and relished playing “gigs” with several bands. We wish to extend our sympathy to his family and friends.
Sincerely, Diane and Joe
Patty I am so sorry about your brother. I just read this. I am so thinking of you and your family. We send our love and know that he is out of pain. He will now be playing for the Lord God in complete joy.
Dick was a good friend. We played together in a number of bands. He also played with my band, the Swingsters and will be greatly missed. We send our sympathy to his family at this time of loss.
