    To the many people who have reached out with kind words and support we thank you sincerely. My dad was perhaps the single biggest influence in my life and continues to touch so many in positive ways even after his passing. We miss him dearly and will carry on his good works, kind deeds and love of family.

    Dear Mrs. Drew,
    I am Bill Wise a very good friend of Dick's back in the Martron days with Hal Pike and others. So sorry to hear about our loss. I always enjoyed Dick's humor and talent. Most of his associates at Martron have passed away. I believe I am one of the few left. God bless you in your time of sorrow. My life was enriched by my friendship with Dick, a good man.
