He volunteered his time as a member on the Park Ridge Police and Fire Commissioners board and coaching his sons in basketball.
Dick had many passions, he loved spending time with his family; taking his boys out on the water, playing guitar, and he spent many beautiful days on the golf course with his wife, brother, friends and sons.
Thank you to his wonderful caregiver, Anna Njuguna, for her several years of loving care to Dick.
