    I’ve known Dick since we first played softball 50+ years ago. He was a reliable outfielder on our Eudora Wings softball team for 20 + years. His son Jim started as our batboy & eventually played with our team. We also worked at the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant for Hercules Aerospace in Roads & Grounds. He was a heavy equipment operator. More than that, Dick was a good friend. Kathleen, Dick put up a valient fight and he will be remembered fondly.

    Brownie was one of my favorite people. He radiated positivity, and I’m happy to have known him. I missed being around him the past few months due to the pandemic.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you are able to find some peace, especially during the holidays. You are all in my prayers.
