Judy, my most sincere condolences to you on Dick's passing. I remember both of you from my time as a student and then an employee at Waubonsee. When struggling with some questions in the early 70's about studies and careers, Dick always gave straight-up, thoughtful advice. He had a great, sly sense of humor that I loved. He was a wonderful instructor, and you were both important friends. Thankfully he's perfect now; he will always be missed, but remembered as well.

Judy, May Richard rest in peace. May you also have peace and be comforted with many wonderful memories. Joyce Crowther Ardern

Judy, I am so sorry. For as long as I can remember you and Dick have always been a couple. He fought so hard to overcome his health issues. I admired him for always volunteering at the hospital and of course his other endeavors. May he rest in peace. Charlene

We have lost a great educator - Dick truly cared about his students. I remember taking a COBOL class from him, and getting a comment on a test question (that I over-aced) "what, are you tying to to make me look bad?"
God bless and keep.
