Sandy, Deb, Mike, Tyler and Ally, I'm so sorry for your loss. Dick would speak of you often and when he did, it was lovingly and kind. He was very proud of you all. I will never forget Dick. He was a good Christian and great administrator. I enjoyed working with him very much.

My sympathy to Sanda and family on the passing of 'Dick' a friend and 103 Belden Street resident neighbor from Marsh School through 1955 graduation. Twin Brother Roger and I spent may hours (all season even snow) on the ground, playing basketball at the Cook's backyard Garage basketball Court. We participated with Dick as team mates in Jr and Sr High Basketball. Residing in Oregon, visiting cousins in La Porte, Janice and I spent quality time (2018) visiting with Dick and Sandy. It was a long time coming visit with Dick....bringing up the many growing up stories and great times we had together. Hoping Sandy has a ND photo Marsh School - 5 member - 5th and 6th grade grade school championship team: Dick, Roger/Richard, Neil Rehbein, and Dave McFeely receiving trophy from Warren Jones after beating the Garfield school team! An always to remember a cherished early school year;s event.

I remember Richard Cook from his Accounting and Typing class back in the early 1960's. I especially remember being in his Typing class when President Kennedy was shot. At the time I didn't realize what a good teacher he was but he was a very calming resource for our class during the announcement and after when we were all shocked. Blessings to the family, Marianne Coffey Morrison
