My Brother-In-Law Dick was always the brother I never had. He was my mentor. He taught me that it is ok to share your faith in Jesus in public. Dick truly was a man of God and was not afraid to explain how that had helped him to anyone who would listen. There is no doubt in my mind as to where Dick is right now. A phrase that was used in my father’s funeral has stuck with me over the years and certainly applies to Dick as well. Mathew 25:23 says “Well done my good and faithful servant, come and share your Master’s
happiness”. May you Rest In Peace Dick, you certainly deserve your salvation. Jim Sloan.

Bev, Doug, and family - Jaime and I express our sympathies to you in the passing of Dick. He was indeed a man of great knowledge and a love for the Lord that would not be contained. Jaime enjoyed working with him immensely in the house yard. Jaime profited more from the dialog with Dick than the work at hand. Dick touched the lives of many generations with his story of faith and the harvest will continue long after the seeds of faith were sowed. Doug shared many memories with me of working with but also having fun with his dad. Dick surely is a man who has left behind a legacy. May God be an ever present source of comfort, peace, and joy during this difficult time. Pastor Shannon and Jaime Pascual
