Diane & Family,I remember Dick with fondness and I think of the good and happy times we shared. My family and I always enjoyed the trips Dick and Diane made to visit us. From the times in San Diego to visiting in Las Vegas he was always more than happy to do things with us or just to visit and enjoy each others company. On a trip to San Diego he was more than willing to have me along on a trip to Universal Studios. Then on a later trip to Las Vegas he was able to share in my son, Izaak's, very first 'blow-out' while we were out eating. I thank God for making Dick a part of my family and my life and I pray that we will meet again in Heaven.With my love and condolences, Alissa Brooks

Dianne and family...I first met Dick back in the CB days 1975ish.We were ALL afraid of his "ruff gruff" voice and so I was alwaysabit intimidated to talk to him on the radio LOL Little did I know Iwould one day actually walk into his house after he had joined theranks of HAM RADIO :) I quickly realized how "down to earth" hewas and so we could talk about anything. I also came to find outjust how wise he was as he seemed to know something abouteverything. We shared much in common over the years and heALWAYS had time to chat or fix a problem if need be. He was likea "second father" to me and I suspect I'm not the only one who feltthat way. Tough as nails and strong as an ox but he seemed tonever loose his cool. A humble man although HUGE heart, hewould give you the shirt off his back. His and your family'sgenerosity will NEVER be forgotten. It broke our hearts tosee him suffer though I gain peace knowing he's in ourSaviors arms atlast. A VERY fitting and beautiful serviceBTW and as I expected there were MANY there.Even knowing we will meet again somehow in Heaven theworld REALLY does seem emptier and colder, our temporaryreality until we meet again Dick...farewell my friend.LOVE, Tim and Patty Newton
