    We have know Dick and MaryAnn through the EUCLID CAMPERS CLUB.. Camping from Spring until Fall every year plus all the times we got together for Weddings and Holidays.
    Never a dull moment as we camped, garage saled, played Bocci, cooked over a campfire ever night. We found any way we could to agrivate each other. WHAT A WONDERFUL GROUP. OF FRIENDS WE ALL WERE FOR SO MANY YEARS. Dick will be truly missed. He is up there playing bocci through creeks, over hills, through mud with the rest of the group that have passed already!
    I can’t forget the wine and cheese parties too. No cops were ever called We laughed and laughed!

    My deepest sympathy to Dick’s family. Dick was a member of our high school class, the class of 1952, Euclid Senior High School. He had always attended our summer luncheon but we very much missed him the last two years. Everyone liked Dick because he always had a good word for everyone, was a great guy, was easy to talk to and much of the time had a smile on his face. He will be missed by all of us. May he rest in peace.
