Dick proudly served his country in the United States Army from 1964-1969 during the Vietnam War. He retired from the AK Steel Corp as a millwright after 40 years of service.
He was a faithful Christian man of 44 years and was a member of the Oak Grove Church where he taught a Teenage Sunday School Class and was a Youth Group Leader. He also served the church as a Deacon. Dick had a passion for studying the Bible, attending all church services, hunting, fishing, and taking care of his farm animals. He loved long walks on the beach, flying kites, watching the sun come up, family vacations, and any social get togethers. He also enjoyed the simple things in life and often spent many evenings drinking coffee, eating a Cherry Cheese Danish, and watching Jeopardy. He had a love like no other and was a friend to anyone and everyone; he expressed it by sharing lots of smiley faces, plenty of fudge, and other baked goods.
He always loved his family; his love for them was unmatched and evident to all. He never missed an opportunity to support and celebrate his family. He often expressed immense pride when discussing them and all their accomplishments. His family viewed him as their rock, biggest supporter, a confidant, and a compass in life. He always provided encouragement, wisdom, and guidance.
He will be missed daily, but never forgotten. It’s not goodbye. Instead, it’s goodnight, meet you at the Garden Gate, and we love you big, Pap!
