Dick, born April 7, 1918 in Detroit, MI, entered into his eternal rest with our Lord on July 22, 2012, in Hollister, CA after a long battle with kidney disease. He is survived by his wife of 69 years, Marie, and will be greatly missed by their large and loving family: William (Betty), Richard, Jr. (Karen), Thomas (Mary Anne), Nancy Joyce (Jim), 11 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
 He was preceded in death by his four siblings. Dick was retired from the Detroit Police Department after 25 years of service, rising to the rank of District Inspector/Commander. Upon retirement he joined Great Lakes Steel and served as Vice-president of Safety and Security.
 After moving to California, he and Marie built a home on the golf course at Ridgemark Country Club in Hollister and enjoyed over 20 years there.
