Dick and I both went to work at Shenandoah Gas in the summer of 1966 and retired in 1996-1997. He was a great guy and friend. We kept in touch and often talked about how things had changed since we were younger. But Dick never changed over the years, he was the same great guy and friend.

The world just lost a true original. I met Dicky in 1979 when I began working for Shenandoah Gas. He was quick to make you feel like you belonged. Is is true......he never met a stranger. I will forever remember his sense of humor and his generosity. I was visiting him once and he tossed me the keys to one of his Harley's and said "let's go to dinner".

My most sincere sympathies to Ricky and Judy, and Nancy Slonaker. One of many memories, is when Dicky bought his 1965 Comet. He, Ethel, Tommy and I went to Florida, and I celebrated my 21st Birthday there in Sarasota. There are many fond memories of our friendship over so many years, with Ricky and my children, either at their home, our home or the Farm in WV. Rest in Peace, Dicky. We all loved you and will miss you!
