    We are so sorry for your loss. Dick was a wonderful man. He made delicious pizzelles and the best pickles. We will really miss his visits.

    Dick hired me to work for him at the Steel Car in September 1980. I was always grateful to him for that. He was one of the nicest men I ever had for a boss. He treated me more like a friend than an employee. Always funny and very generous too. I have many fond memories of snowmobiling at his camp. My condolences to Cheri and Kent and family. Paul Yoos
