Dick was a great neighbor and friend. He and Leonard took care of each others mail and newspaper. When the doorbell rang every evening we knew that Dick had brought the mail in. He will will be truly missed by me and all his neighbors.

We send our love and sympathy to Dicks family. So we could not make the flight up for the services. Larry W. is still in the hospital and I have not been feeling all that well either. Chemo tomorrow.
Will be thinking of you all and praying for the Perrey family.

Love and Condolences
Larry and Connie Manning

I knew Dick from my old RCA days starting in 1969 at the LaSalle & Michigan St. plant. We had a lot of good times together and I shall miss him. My condolences to the family.

Adios Dick, good luck in the next life, Charley.

I am disappointed to learn of Dicks' passing. I enjoyed playing cards with him and was always happy to see him at the games.
