It has been many years since I last saw Dick, better known to me as "Richie". We grew up together as cousins and spent many hours together at Singletary Lake (where he was a lifeguard), playing baseball in the field behind his childhood home, watching double features in Uncle Larry's Kaiser at the Sutton Drive-In (owned by our Uncle Wilfred and Aunt Amelia), feeding his rabbits, and so many more adventures. What I remember most about Richie was his sense of humor and infectious laugh. When he laughed during a movie you could hear him throughout the Drive In. I think he could even tell a joke in French : ) I'm sorry for your loss. May the peace of God be with you during this time of grief and may pleasant memories bring you comfort and strength.

My memories of Dick are of a wonderful husband & father. I can remember when he & Marge were courting/dating & especially their time in Rye & then in their lovely home in Williamsburg. His wonderful smile. Rest in peace. You will be sorely missed by so many who loved you.
