    • Thank you Rick, Dick found great enjoyment in providing learning opportunities to the scouts, as well as his interaction with those who shared in his mission. He was always excited about your presentation to the scouts in the Mendon community. Best wishes for you and your family.

  4. Condolences to Dick’s wife and family. My late husband and I had the pleasure of working with Dick during our son’s scouting days. He was a good guy, sharing his knowledge with the kids patiently. I think he was there for every camp out and hike (rain, sleet or snow). Rest peacefully Dick.

    • Hello Bob, Dick found great joy in being part of the Mendon Scouting leadership and in providing learning opportunities. Thank you for your friendship. Best wishes to you, Linda and your family. Peggy
