Dick loved to play golf and was a charter member of the men's club at MeadowWood Golf Course. Over his years of golfing he obtained 3 "hole-in-ones". For years he spent many happy hours flying kites at Ocean Shores, WA. Dick so enjoyed all of his friends at Felts Field Airport and looked forward to Saturdays, flying to various locations with his buddies and having breakfast with them. Another favorite was traveling and sightseeing as well as playing cards and games. He enjoyed telling stories and was known to be good natured and kind hearted. He touched many lives and will be greatly missed.
