I saw Dick many times at his Bicycle Store on Grand and 37th where Starbucks now stands. He was always so friendly. Was saddened to learn of his death at the time. Here is his obituary from The Spokesman Review:

I'll always remember Dick as a friendly guy with a great smile and a good word for everyone.  I seem to recall that he was a great swimmer, too, butterfly being his favorite stroke.

Remember Dick from our Biology class ...... he had a bit of trouble when we had to cut up a frog and pick out it's insides, but fortunately as his partner I was able to help him through the experience. He couldn't stand to cut up an animal. We laughed a lot about that class. He was a wonderful and friendly guy. Sorry to hear he died so young but looks like he was able to enjoy the things he loved most.

So sorry to see dicks obituary I knew him as a friend from many classes. Dick, Dan Torpey, and I used to go target shooting out in the Newman Lake area. Did that with them on many occasions he was good guy. Saw him around town on many occasions would have never guessed that he was sick enough to pass away he will be missed by many of us.

I worked with Dick on several things, like the Jr Con and the ASB Christmas mixer. He was always cheerful and had a solid sende of humour. I am sorry he died young. Remember the old saying: Only the good die young. Like Chrisitne Jones : she was very good!

I agree.  Both Dick and Chris were friends of mine and both very good people.  We have lost many classmates and although it is sad, they will still be with us in spirit.  So many great memories in the halls of L.C.  Sharon

Neither Dick nor I had a date for the senior prom, so we went together as friends and had a great time. He really planned a nice evening. Good memories and a super nice guy. Sorry to hear of his passing.
