Dick loved and cared about his family and extended family and friends very much. He shared Jesus with all who would listen and he wanted them all to be in heaven with him one day. People always loved his infectious laugh.
He served his country in the Air Force. He especially liked his time spent in Alaska as a jet mechanic. He loved riding and racing his motorcycles and enjoyed his time driving trucks.
Dick was born in Whittier California and spent almost half his life there. In Whittier, he met his future wife, Bonnie Adamson of Colorado. He always said they had to import someone from out of state to get him.
Dick and his family moved to Carson City Nevada in 1979 where he lived with Bonnie until they relocated to Midlothian Virginia in 2013, where he spent his final years.
