Dick wore many hats throughout his life time having spent many years in the freight business and them moving on to becoming a stock broker, an auctioneer, thrift store owner/operator, estate appraiser and liquidator. He met his wife Dianne in 1981 and they married on November 23, 1984. Dick made friends quickly with his dry sense of humor and quick wit. He loved to tease and banter back and forth with people.He would be the first to lend you a helping hand, give you the shirt off his back, or give advice. He will be missed by many including his wife of 32 years Dianne Vose, his daughter Vanessa Burns, daughter in law Karen Burns, Step-son Jonathan Vose and his wife Roberta, and step grandchildren Emily and Abby Vose.
