    Dad's passion and memories from his annual fishing trip to Canada provided hours of storytelling throughout the years. He developed great cooking skills as a result of his once-a-month KP duties helping his mother prepare family meals. All of his children readily admit we benefited from Dad's cooking skills. He was proud of his garden and asparagus patch, and enjoyed canning in the fall. Dad we are really going to miss our "Jack-of-all-trades" because all of us at one time relied on your plumbing, electrical, mechanical, masonry, remodeling, and car repair skills. Now it's time to share those skills and stories with the angels in heaven, and we're sure you will be entertaining them with your joking personality.

    The family thanks all of the passionate hospice nurses who provided kindness and comfort during his last eight months. A special thanks to nurse Christina who will forever hold a special place in Dick's heart as well as the family. Your support and compassion was a great comfort to us.

    The Christian funeral for Dick will be held on Monday, November 7, 2016 at 11:00 am at Emanuel Lutheran Church in New London with Rev. William Heiges officiating. Burial will be at Floral Hill Cemetery, New London. A visitation for Dick will be held AT THE CHURCH on Sunday, November 6th from 1 to 4 pm and on Monday from 9:30 am until the time of the service.

    God's Garden

    God looked around his garden And found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered, 'Peace be thine'. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn't go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home. - Anonymous.
