Sadly, I read of Dick's passing in the Springfield Mass Republican. We were great friends back in the day. He was an usher in Alice (nee Connor) and my wedding at St Mary's church Longmeadow (Mark, I think you were one of the alter boys)). We attended our daughters weddings but unfortunately, loss touch with each other as years passed. Learning from his obit, that he lived only a dozen miles down the road from Alice and me (Cocoa Beach) saddens me more. We would have loved to have gotten together. He was a great guy and a true friend. Our sincerest sympathy to the family. Rick and Alice ONeil

Dear Helen and family, Can't quite express the depth of this loss. Dick was quite an amazing person. We loved his sense of humor, enthusiasm and love of life. He lived his life to the fullest. We were fortunate that our life paths crossed. We hold many wonderful memories in our hearts. Hoping your wonderful memories will ease the pain of his loss.
