    Andrew and family, Anthony ; and Claudette and family . I was shocked and deeply saddened when I read in the World Herald this morning that Dick had passed away. I worked with Dick from his first day at Kirkham Michael and Associates until he retired. Dick worked in the environmental department on primarily Water and Waste Water Treatment plants and as well as other projects we both worked on. Dick was a loyal, hard-working and dedicated employee. I appreciated how he worked with younger employees mentoring them on how to become better at what they did. . I have fond memories of our friendship throughout all these years and will treasure them forever. I will not be able to attend either the visitation or funeral because my wife has doctor appointments during the same times. I pray you handle the sorrow well and still recall all the memories you all had with Dick.

    Andy. Alex and family. Prayers for each of you. Stumbled upon his obituary tonight. Dick was always good at checking in with Grandma Thelma over the years after Mary’s passing. Good memories with the Quimby/Werner family as a child. Thinking of you all.
