Dick lost his battle with cancer Nov. 17, 2005.
A native of Pittsburgh, Dick graduated from that city's Alderdice High School, where he was valedictorian, student council and debating club president, and captain of the golf team. At Princeton he was in the Woodrow Wilson School, and wrote his thesis on the strained relations between Congress and the Supreme Court during Reconstruction. He belonged to Quadrangle, served on the business staff of Triangle, and won the Class of 1876 debate award.
After Princeton, Dick graduated from Columbia Law School and embarked on an impressive legal career, which took him from a position with the Wall Street firm of Hughes, Hubbard & Reed, to service as an assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, to appointment as chief of the criminal division of the U.S. Attorney's office in Atlanta, and finally back to Pittsburgh and private practice with his wife, Nancy Norkus.
Throughout his life Dick was an avid golfer. He also was a golf historian.
He is survived by Nancy; his brother, Jeffrey; and his parents, Marian and Robert. The class offers them its deepest sympathy.
