Dick, a man of great knowledge and working skills. Having
him as a co-worker gave you a feeling of confidence. Confident
because, he was a man with 32 years experience in his field.
It was a pleasure working with a man who started out as a
handy man and pursued his field to finish as an Engineer. No
task was every to big for him. He turned every difficult situa-
tion or crisis into an easy chore.
A lot of us have learned from Dick, not only skill wise, but
also everyday living. Beinq a happy cheerful worker, made him
able to get along with all his co-workers.
lie will truly be missed, but not forgotten, for at one time
or another, he shined a light on all of us. A man of his caliber
cannot be replaced for the dedication and tireless efforts he
donated to his job, cannot be matched. He was a good man, and
an excellent worker.
