Dick spent his summers boating, fishing, and riding his Harleys. Dick attended Saco schools throughout his life and graduated from in 1980. He worked for years in the landscaping business. Wherever he went, he was always leaving his trademark trimming friend’s landscape. He later worked in the building trades of plumbing, heating, and carpentry.

He most enjoyed spending time with family and friends swimming and fishing on lakes and ponds throughout the State of Maine.
