bright part of my day when he came in for his bagel or muffin
at Panera. All of us day shift girls enjoyed his bright smile &
kindness. I loved chatting with him & serving him breakfast.
Definitely one of my favorite customers & is greatly missed! |

|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.

|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. |
