So sorry for your loss! He was a great guy that taught me a lot about life. I am glad that I had the time to get to know him growing up. We went our separate ways in life, but I am so happy that he found you and your family! You will all be in my prayers!!!!

Ken, Maureen, Arnie, Kim, extended family and Buster too:
As a long ago friend and 2nd or 3rd cousin I was saddened to hear of Dick's passing. Dick, Ken and I spent a lot of time together as children and teenagers growing up in Castanea Township. As youngsters Dick & I both played Little League baseball, we were all members of the Black Ravens Drum & Bugle Corp, rode and helped care for the family horses, and cruised around town in Ken's fire engine red Pontiac Convertible. After the the family became partners in Corman's Turkey Bar B Q we all worked their for a time. While we went our separate ways as adults and only occasionally ran into one another, I often think of the good times we had back then. Dick was a good man and a good friend. While I am sure it is hard for you all right now I hope your memories of the good times give you comfort as your lives go forward.
Sincerely - Larry Adams
