Dick was our friend and neighbor for several years in Jonesborough. We always loved having him in our home. Dick was a person who always had an upbeat attitude, even if things were not going to his liking. You could always count on Dick to bring a valuable perspective to any conversation, and do it with a smile. Here is an example of who Dick was: Not too long ago David was at work in Johnson City when Sharon had a medical emergency at home which required an immediate trip to the emergency room. She was in a lot of pain and in no condition to drive. Dick was driving by and when he learned of the situation he immediately took Sharon to the hospital and stayed with her until David could get there. That's the kind of thing Dick did all the time, and to him it was no big deal. But it was to us. Our hearts go out especially to Cynthia. Our circle of friends and neighbors has suffered a great loss. Farewell Dick, it was our honor and privilege to know you. Sharon and David Perot

It was such a pleasure to have Dick as our next door neighbor and dear friend here in Tennessee. He had a great sense of humor and simply enjoyed people. Our golden retriever would run to greet Dick every time she saw him, and he always love on her and say "how's my girl". Dick is missed terribly, but we will think of him and smile, as he always brightened our day.

Our condolences and sympathies to Dick's wife, children and grandchildren. It has been quite awhile since I had seen and talked with Dick. My father was Dick's Uncle Sam. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
