Mike also stated: "As you know, Dick was an integral part of nearly every Marine Corps Organization in the Metroplex. We have lost a key driving force in many, many local Marine Corps support projects. His dedication, loyalty, and love of our Corps has been admired by his fellow citizens, Marine and civilian. To say he will be missed is an understatement."
