Dick was a true gentleman and kind. I'll never forget when he came to my house in 2002 and fixed up our bulkhead and installed interior doors and knobs. My Dad enjoyed talking with him. Dick helped everyone and loved his families. Thank you for your service Sir and Rest in Peace. Linda Topalian Pegnato
