Sorry to hear about your loss. My dad, Tom O'Shea, worked as a welder at the Everett GE and often spoke of the friendship he had with Dick.
So sorry to hear of Dick's passing. Sending sympathy to his dear family, Virginia, Richard, Paula and John and their families. I'm sure he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. May he Rest In Peace.
I will miss him. A great neighbor and an even a better human being. I still cannot get over when I thought he was watering his flower on the back porch, hey that is my job. Walking over to see him I had forgotten that the flower was now in front. I realize he is loosening the lids of his two barrels and actually aligning the two holes on the lid with the two holes on the barrel handle. OMG, I said after all you are going through you are worried about getting these holes lined up? After that revelation whenever I put the barrels back on the porch I make darn sure the lid and barrel handle holes line up perfectly LOL. RIP Dick. Love, Rick
