    Dick was my supervisor as I began my counseling career in the late 90's in Longmont. He was kind, helpful, encouraging and had a wonderful calm and gentle manner. I am so sorry to hear of his loss and send my condolences to the family.

    To Dick’s family: I was startled and saddened to read of Dick’s death. He and I were fellow pastors in Longmont for several years (I came here in 1983 as pastor of First Lutheran Church in Longmont), and I remember many warm conversations and interactions with him. You are in my prayers... for God’s peace, comfort, and the assurance of his eternal promises in Christ. – Bruce Welander

    Debbie and Ryan, I just this moment learned of Dick’s passing. For a couple of years he worked as my parish administrator at St. Stephen’s. He was always cheerful and could see the humor in almost any situation. He had a story for every occasion and I will not soon forget him. He loved you both very much. I am sure because not a day went by that he didn’t share a story about his family. He will certainly be missed. Peace and comfort to you both.

    I was very sorry and sad to hear about Dick. My first thoughts were of Bible studies I was in with Dick and his serious interest in C. S. Lewis. But I also have great memories of fly fishing with Dick several times He loved being on the water with his fly rod. Know we are thinking of you.
