My sincere sympathy to the family. Dickie was such a joy to work with. I met him in 1980 when I became a supervisor in the boiler house. He was always happy and upbeat. And kept a grin on his face that made you wonder what he was up to. I’m sure he will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

I worked with Dick at the plant and will never forget him. He had the uncanny ability to make people laugh. I can't remember working with anyone with a sense of humor like Dick. He was a whole lot of fun to work with and had an endless repertoire of funny stories both from the plant and from his years in the marines. RIP dear friend. tom pondysh
