Dick hired me as a nurse for OB in 1969 and his companion, Carl Olson, became my boss in the Education Department. We had many wonderful and happy times together and Dick's dry sense of humor always had us laughing.
Everyone thought we had the best table at lunch and quickly would join us.
He was a dedicated nurse and a wonderful compasionate man. We will all mis you.

We are so sorry about the loss of your brother. I couldn't find the write up until this morning, Monday the 9th. We kept looking in the Metrowest paper.
Again - sorry for your loss.
