My dearest friend, I have so much to tell you and yet, my words fail me. We had such good times together and so many sweet memories. I remember the cool Austin evenings when we grilled dinner on the deck, had a glass or two of Wellers and talked until the early morning about philosophy, life and the beautiful people who graced our lives. We told jokes and laughed at all the silliness of life none of which we took too seriously. Those were the best days in Austin. You loved your children, cherished your friends and lived life every day with joy and enthusiasm. You were truly an exceptional, unique and much loved friend. I'm missing you, but I have the memories of our happy times together, and that will remain forever. Good by my dear friend, and may God grant you peace. I'll see you on the other side Demetri Vacalis

I worked for Dick in the late '70s. He was very good to me and a fine man. Good memories. TJ Johnston.

Heartfelt condolences to Dick's family. River, I was thinking of you and Dick and your parents the other day, remembering all the fun we had in the beautiful home your Dad built on Montwood, watching the tadpoles in the pond, having sleep-outs in the back yard, our Beatlemania!.....So sorry we lost touch. Blessings and love to you all.

Dick, we had some really great laughs and stimulating conversations about almost everything. You had an awesome bright mind. I am truly sorry for losing touch the last few years. Many of us will miss you. Happy Trails. All my best. Richard Maier

The friendship you shared with my mother and father while living in Westlake (Austin) was cherished. They loved spending time with you debating all the worlds events late into the night. As an adolescent I watched and admired the special bond you three had for each other and family. You were and still are influential to those you touched with your wit, humor and intellect. We have lost a special and dear friend in your passing and pray for your family and you.
