 I am so sorry to hear this.  Dick was my cousin in which I haven't seen in 50 years, but did try to find him about 3 years ago. We played together as kids and would go to the Carlisle fair together and would go to our uncle Willis farm and do work together. He was and will be missed.

 I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with Dick at Reeves-Hoffman in the Ensgr. Dept.. He was a great co-worker always willing to help if asked.I knew that if I had a problem I could talk to Dick and he would try to help. Again so sorry.
