    This man will greatly be missed. Grateful for the opportunity I had to work with him at JDC. Man had spirit…and the heart of a wild child. So many were able to learn and grow from him sharing his experiences. Even back in 2000 Dick had his health set backs but that never deterred him from coming to work with a joke in his pocket and determination to get through to the hardest of kids. He loved to be in the kitchen cooking and the kids were stoked because he could take anything bland and make it gourmet!

    We have a lot of fond memories of camping and being close with Dick & Candy when all of our kids were young. Dale and Dick were friends back when they were kids and swapped pigeons together. Dick & Candy are now together again. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dicks girls, his Mom and sister and all of Dicks family. Cherish your memories.
