Before coming to Canada in 1965, he served in the Merchant Navy and at the Radar Establishment in Malvern. After retiring, Dick had time to pursue his life-long passion for astronomy as well as tending his garden, especially his beloved roses. He and Marg always enjoyed life together which included their love of music, model railroading, growing of African Violets, love of the outdoors, biking, hiking and traveling extensively. Dick will be greatly missed by many whose lives he touched.
