We are so sorry to hear about Dick.
He was one of my first friends in my life. His mother would help us make Christmas decorations in tin cans. A memory I will always have.
Being your neighbors in Meriden added great joy for all of us.
We still have the Lincoln stone carving he gave us.
Deep prayers and soul thoughts are in our hearts
Terry and Eileen

Condolence: Bob & family - I was so sorry to read about Dick's passing. I was fortunate to have worked with him for many years at WHS. He was one of those teachers who cared deeply about his students. Sending prayers to help you through this difficult time.
Sincerely, Cynthia Hoos
Condolence: Sorry for your loss. Dick was my 7th grade History teacher in his first year as a teacher. He left a lasting positive impression on everyone that he taught, whether History or Art. I later came to know him as the Brother-in-Law of 2 of my closest friends, George and Peggy. My sincere condolences to Linda and all his family.
Condolence: I am so very sad to hear that Dick passed on. He was a great man and talented artist. I knew him through Wesleyan Potters and have really missed him over the last few years. My deepest condolences go out to the family.
Condolence: Linda, Kevin, Ken and Mary Kate. Such a sad time with the passing of Dick. He was a kind hearted person and had a wonderful sense of humor. I will miss him as I visit the house. Fond memories of him working on his cross word puzzle or making a wonderful meal. God Bless all of you at this time. Prayers for healing and strength to carry on.
