From: Wiley Stowers Sep 11 2020 1:26PM I would like to off my condolences for the passing of Dick.I have worked at BSC since August 2009. That is how I became acquainted with Dick. I enjoyed talking to him. Occasionally he would mention of a military experience or talk about how seals were meant to work. I will miss his visits.

From: Joe St.Clair Sep 14 2020 2:27PM My condolences to the family. I met Dick through working at Brake Supply. Every time I would speak with Dick we would eventually end up on sports. He shared many stories of players he coached or had met. I will miss those conversations. From: Leonard Deutsch Sep 14 2020 7:48PM Judy and I send our condolences.
From: Randy Short Sep 17 2020 11:35AM Cam,
I am sorry to read of your husband's passing. I was a student in your speech class at Marshall many years ago and I remember you as such a kind an caring professor and individual. While I never met your husband, I can tell from his obituary that he must have been so similar to you in that he cared about others and gave of himself to bring joy to others as well as his service to our country. Peace be with you and your family as you remember a life well lived and the decades of wonderful times.
