I worked with Dick for many years at the Plant.  He was absolutely one of my favorite people in my life! Dick had a way of making work fun.  He never had a cross word about any one. He made me laugh, laugh, laugh. I looked forward to work.  Then the apple didn't fall far from the tree.  Later, I worked with Dale at the BEC.  Dale made laugh and laugh.  Dick will be missed. He will be joing June at his side.

Dick was my first softball coach.  He, Norm, Ada and Carla were great to have as coaches!  Dick taught me so much and I have always had such fond memories of the great times we had together on the Belden team!  He was always there whenever someone needed, no matter what.  Dick will be missed but never forgotten!!
