Charlie’s family has our sympathy on his passing. I served with him in the Red Rose Veterans Honor Guard and we found that he was born at LGH the night before I was, so that made us nursery mates. We thank him for his service to the honor guard.

Remembering Richard, who was so very pleasant to everyone…..
Many times our paths crossed….when he served as President of Hamilton Elementary PTO, at LNP… always helping with us with NIE Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Citizen Bee, Writing Contest & many other set ups/tear downs, and as a neighbor on Reservoir Street where my parents lived for 50 yrs and i grew up.
May God keep you and your family in his tender loving care, sending you strength and peace for the coming days
We believe we will meet our loved ones again with Jesus….in God’s time
Take good care of each other

My deepest sympathy to Joan, Lauri, Diane, spouses and grandchildren for your loss. I always knew when I had to find ushers for church Dick would always say yes. He was always so friendly, kind, and accommodating. He will be truly missed by everyone who knew him. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family, and so sorry I will be unable to attend tomorrow’s services. May knowing others care and the wonderful memories bring you some peace at this very difficult time.
