Dick and I have been friends since 10th grade. Part of our "Brightmoor Bums" that stayed in touch since graduation. Played on softball teams together, visited the old neighborhood and belonged to the Dad's Club of Westland. Dick was a great husband, father and grandfather. He will be missed. God Bless Peggy and family.

did not know the very handsome Richard but would see him around school often.  My blessings to his family and friends.  It is a sad day to lose another classmate.

Dick and I were born a day apart. Life long friends he simply bacame family. We did'nt live near each other but we did stay in touch and maintained our close relationshep. Like I said we were always family. Dick fought  health issues for more than half his life yet he always had a smile. Except when the Tigers or the Redwings lost a stupid game. I have to say he had the good fortune to be married to Peggy. She and the rest of his support group are major reasons he had a longer than anticapated, and very happy life. He will always be in the wonderfull memories I have of my time on this earth. Rest in peace Dick.
