    Sorry to hear of the passing of our Otsego Lake neighbor. Patty & I enjoyed our visits with Dick & Del at our favorite restaurants. Our sympathies go out to Del and family.

  2. It’s really hard to lose a lifetime best friend of 75 years. Dick and I and later with our wives, Del and Sue, shared many good times together. He will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

  3. Dick will truly be missed. I looked forward to our yearly meet ups in Florida. He always put a smile on my face. Hugs to Del and her family!
