Dick will be greatly missed by his family. He had a smile that was contagious and would light up a room when he walked in. He was always full of knowledge from all the thousands of books he loved to read. But one of his greatest enjoyments in life was to ride his Harley all over Southern Illinois visiting family and friends.
