I have good memories of serving on the THS Student Council with Dick.  He ran a productive meeting while allowing his good sense of humor to show itself from time to time.

I remember Dick as a such a nice friend and classmate at THS.  He was a popular guy and was so nice knowing him.  May you rest in peace, Dick.
