I was so sorry to see that Dick has passed. I worked with him for many years at Power City. He was a great guy, a very hard worker and loyal to all. He will be missed. My prayers are with all in the family. God Bless.
Prayers and thoughts for the whole family. Dick was a good man and I’m sure a good father to his children. I grew up across “the alley” from Dick. In our youth, we played together and were in the same class at St.Lad’s. In later years, when I was visiting my parents in Wheeling, I would see him and be able to catch-up on the happenings in South Wheeling.
