We were saddened beyond words to hear of Dick's passing. He was a dear, dear friend and we have many special memories. Sincerest condolences to Gail, Lori and family. You are in our hearts and prayers.

After Teacher's College, Dick and Gail moved into an apartment on Wellington Street. So did we... It was surprising to discover that Dick and Gus were first year teachers at St. David's School. We had good times in that apartment and spent many week-ends playing cards and drinking "pop".

Dick's kindness, humour and friendship will be in our hearts forever.

My sincere condolences Gail & family. I knew Dick to be an efficient principal in our school system . He dedicated his time ensuring that all his students experienced the best of times obtaining their education. One could always expect a reason to smile or chuckle when conversing with him. May he Rest In Peace! Sincerely, Jeanie McNair
