We were so sorry to learn of Dick’s passing. Sending positive thoughts of peace and calm to Ida and family in this time of immense sorrow and loss.
I always enjoyed playing golf with Dick at the Edmonton Country Club and so often during those many games, he’d share his current golf tips and we’d routinely chat about old movies and all the musicals that he loved and knew so well. When his golf games became less frequent it was always fun to receive all his emails of jokes and cartoons, in fact as recently as just several weeks ago. DIck was a good friend to many and he will be missed both on and off the course.
