    I am sorry to hear Uncle Dick is gone, but have many fond childhood memories of him. Bless you, Sharon, in the months to come. You made his life so much warmer and happier.

  2. I remember Dick fondly. He was a great scout leader and could always joke around. I appreciate Dick for all that he did for scouting, his volunteerisim, his mentoring of future leaders, and for his laughter. You will be missed Dick.

  3. Sharon and family, my sympathies and condolences for Dick’s passing. I was one of the many Boy Scouts who worked with Dick in the Northeast IL Council and have many terrific memories of him. He was a true friend and a mentor to so many of us. I hope you know of the volume of great memories and good wishes for Dick being shared by us Scouts, on Facebook and elsewhere. He was so well liked and respected. My prayers and best wishes to you.
