    Chris, Ed and I so enjoyed going to Charleston with you and Rich! How he loved SNOB and then High Cotton restaurants. We had such wonderful times at the beach parties and we'll remember Rich's navigation from our trip to Columbia SC. He will be so missed!

    Chris, Lisa, Chris & Pat, Mary Jane & I extend out deepest sympathy on the loss of your dad and husband. Dick was one of the finest persons we ever came knew. It was Dick who was instrumental in geeting me to come to Control Associates, and I was always very greatful. Dick was one of the finest Fisher/ Control Associates true Superstars and now God has the Gipper . He was a wonderul human being, a great engineer, super salesman, loved sports and the Yankees. A super dad and husband to two fine wives. I was fortunate to have worked with him for decades and we had lots of fun, " work hard/ play hard". we shared a lot of similar interests, especially talking about our kids and the pride in had for Chris and Lisa. Dick had a great spirit, today we miss him dearly. I know many associates, customers, and friends will echo my comments. Mary Jane and I send our deepest sympathy to all of you. God Bless You
