    We were so sorry to hear about Dick’s passing. Our memories of Dick go back
    to the hockey days of our sons. He was our son, Dave, coach in Dave’s formative
    years of learning the game of hockey. Dick provided many hours of coaching, tieing
    skate laces and driving to and from the games. Dick was always in good humor and very thoughtful
    of the skaters and parents. We have very special memories of a very special man.
    Our sympathy to Ginny and Dick’s family.
    Dean and Wendy Lenz
