Dick was an incredible man, and such a great friend to our late father (Edward). So sorry for your loss. Dick was so talented, fun and a great hunter and story teller. I still have and cherish a knife that Dick gave Me for my high school graduation that Dick engraved my initials in. Rest In Peace Dick & God Bless.
