It was a very sad day when I received the news that my dear friend Dick had passed away. I have known Dick for over 59 years. We meet when we were 10 or ll. What a wonderful beginning and friendship it was together. We would hunt ducks, pheasants, rabbits, squirrels, foxes, deer, antelope. We would go to shoots and enter the hunt and cover. Then at 16 after saving every penny we could, we made the trek to Wyoming with another friend to hunt mule deer, antelope, what a wild fun trip for us 16 year olds. That trip made so memories and we continued to go their for years before and after we were both were drafted into the Army. I remember doing cattle round-up on horses to help the rancher. Dick meet Kathy and I knew he was hooked for life. The story of us continued throughout our lives. I moved to Madison, finally Lodi area, I was gone constantly traveling for my business as Dick was driving truck and raising his family. We would always stay in touch. We both got into registered shooting and made a point to get together and squad at least once a year. State shoot we always would spend time together. Dick I’m going to try and make those tracks one more time for the both of us in Wyoming in 2021. Prayer for Kathy and family.
See you on the upside! Dick my lifetime wonderful friend R.I.P.
