Mr. G was an amazing teacher. I remember sitting in his classroom in 5th grade at Eisenhower Elementary, preparing for our trip to the Challenger Center. I am so sad to hear of his passing. I know the students who had him will remember him fondly.

Teaching with Dick at Lake Street brought back fond memories of years past. He always had a smile on his face, and a good story to tell. His students and colleagues thought the world of him. My deepest condolences to the family.

Truly an honor to have known such a great man. My condolences to all. Sincerely, Lana Roach Kabella

Aunt Marti, Chris and Bethany I am so sorry for your loss. This all happened so fast. I share your loss as Uncle Dick was someone who has always been there in my life for all the important occasions and some not so important. I want to remember him smiling by the grill flipping burgers and holding a Bacardi and diet Coke or was it Diet Rite?. I don't have enough room on here to share all my memories. I am so sorry. Anyone who knew him will miss him.
