Dick, a Hill School graduate, joined us in 1946 after a year in the Army. At Princeton he majored in mechanical engineering, and belonged to ASME and Charter Club. In September 1948, he married Barbara, and they lived off campus for his junior and senior years.
After graduation he worked for a machine-tool firm in Cincinnati, then founded his own distributorship, Technical Equipment Sales, which he headed until retirement. He was active in the Princeton Alumni Association of Southern Ohio, the Cincinnati Nature Center, the Boys and Girls Club, the Stepping Stones Center, and the Commonwealth Club. His activities, both before and after retirement, were riding, sailing, golf, indoor badminton, and bridge.
He was predeceased by his wife of 45 years, Barbara; and by his second wife, Mary Lou. He is survived by his children, Pamela, Patricia, and Barbara; four grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; two stepchildren; and three step-grandchildren. His friends and family remember him affectionately, and we offer them our condolences and sympathy.
