Dick died March 23, 2017, in Vero Beach, Fla., just 11 days after  his 90th birthday. Born March 12, 1927, Dick served in the Marines from June 1945 until August 1946. He entered Princeton as a member of our Class of 1949. Dick majored in economics and joined Tower Club. At first he roomed with Bob Kress, but he managed to give up the bachelor life in order to marry Nancy Case Brown in August 1948. He and Nancy lived in married-student housing for his junior and senior years.

After graduation he went to work for Allegheny-Ludlum Steel Corp. and remained with the company until his retirement in 1986 as vice president of its commercial division. He and Nancy then moved to Florida. In our 50th yearbook, To 1999 and Beyond, Dick reported that he kept active with boating, golfing, and volunteer work “as a teacher of abused children.”

Nancy and Dick had three children, Kathryn M. Gill, Laura, and Dick Jr. Laura predeceased her parents, and Nancy died in 2014. We offer our sincere condolences to Kathryn and Dick Jr.
