Dick was an absolute sports buff. Some would even
call him a historian of sports; if someone had a
question about a game or a team they would call
Dick. He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan. He
enjoyed the Men’s breakfast club at the Alley-Bi. He
was a Lincoln Railer fan and as well as a former
player; in 1956 he played in the very last sweet 16
basketball game that was held at Huff Stadium in
Above all else, Dick loved his family; he will be
greatly missed by anyone who was fortunate enough to
have known him.
