Every time Dick came in to Kern Motor Co. he brought that big smile and that big voice. He wasn't a customer he was a friend! knowing Pat and Dick was a bright spot whenever they visited and they are surely missed. Dick always added fun no matter the circumstances whenever we talked. I smile just thinking of his memory! Sincerely, Rick Kern

Dick Boxwell was a "great" organizer for Korean War Veterans Association Chapter 313 Fund Raising. He was able to get the three Walmart Stores to allow us to collect donations at their front doors. He also had a difficult time insuring some of us showed up on time (especially me since I and to come from Ashburn from work) to man the tables to collection donations made to our KWVA Chapter. It was a great time to get to know other chapter members as well as speaking to many individuals and their families about their relatives serving in the Military. It as was a great "recruiting" opportunity for our chapter. We will all "miss" him and his stories. I was told he was one of our "founding" chapter member.

Butch was Co-Captain and my team mate on Handley’s 1949 Championship football team. A great leader. Always positive. H e was a strong runner and always got us the tough yards we needed to win 10 games. Quite a guy, An American Original.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
