Dickie was best known for his love of dogs, his practical jokes, collecting cans, teasing the kids, flirting with the ladies and watching wrestling.

The world lost a brave and sweet soul who we all could learn from. Preceded in death by: Mom: Minnie. Dad: Richard. Sister: Pam. Aunt: Maggie. Brothers: Bob and Ken.
