I did not think about it until Dick's passing but we went back a good 40 years, first through a HR professional group which met monthly and then when I was a part time instructor at ISTC.. Dick was very proud of his military service, particularly in Viet Nam and was very appreciative of others who likewise served. He was truly a lousy golfer characterized by his colorful language following a bad shot, for which there were many, and never letting the hospitality cart go by without waving it down. Dick will be missed.
