I'm so sorry to hear of Dicks' passing, he was a great friend and co-worker. I'll especially miss the times we spent going to Carlisle to look at old cars. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Rest in peace my friend, you will not be forgotten.

To the family of our good and kind friend, the coffee gang that welcomed Dick into the fold several years ago expresses their deepest sympathy and heartfelt regret of his passing. He will be sadly missed by all at our table set for discussion on the day's events, personal subjects, and yes, antique autos! Rest well Dick, and may your family know that you made an enjoyable difference over our daily breakfast and morning coffee. Two soft scrambled eggs please, with toast, crisp bacon, and no homefries!

Dick co-founded the Maine Coastal Cruisers fifteen years ago. I've only known him for twelve, but in our "later" years we did have many spirited discussions about the most important things in life - our medications and our cars. I'll miss those chats.
My wife Jacqui joins me in offering our condolences to Dick's family.
