    Marian – If it’s a Coapstick, it’s a good citizen in every way. Dick was no exception. We know you will miss him so much. Our deepest sympathy.
    Dan and Kelley – super off springs. We know you and your families gave him both warmth and pride – and visa versa – take good care of your mom – we know you will

    Marian: I was so saddened to read that Dick had passed away. Saw him about a year ago, and had a great time talking about the “good old days” at the The Farmers Bank. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    Please accept my condolence and sympathy for the passing of your Dad. I remember one particular afternoon (I believe we were freshmen) building a float at your house with several other kids and meeting Dick. Beside having a great sense of humor he made each and every kid there that day feel like they were his kids. You and your family are in our daily prayers.
    God Bless
