Haven't seen Dick in a few years. I'll never forget how proud he was of his Datsun 240Z back in the 70's. He took me on a couple of wild rides. Condolences to the family. RIP.

We were sitting around a fire in the drive way between his house and the Rabine's eating chunks of fudge his mom made for some event when his dad came out the door and let out a yell we all jumped a mile. We became very close friends in kindergarten
