I enjoyed working with Richard during his long and successful career with Pyrotek. He was a very good machinist and was always friendly and easy to work with. I'm sorry to learn about his passing. We at Pyrotek have missed Dick since his retirement from work. I'm sure everyone who knew and loved Dick will miss him. I'm very sorry for his families loss and send my sincere condolences.
