    Back in the 60and 70s we spent lots of time together. I pulled his rope on lot’s of those bulls he rode. Just a fun person to be around. In our days we didn’t have sell phones we had horses boots and spurs.. most of all we made friends that has lasted a lifetime. I will be praying for you all. He will be missed by many. So long brother.

    My husband “Redeye” worked with Dick on the railroad. I later met him in the mid 70’s. We had a lot of good times together. In the summer, we would go to the AR river. I was amazed the first time I saw Dick bare footing! We also went camping often. Our condolences to the family. So long Dick.
