Dick retired from Lear Corporation in Elsie after many years of service. He enjoyed hunting and fishing. He enjoyed watching all sports especially the ones his grandkids played in. If you ever wanted to find him, he could be found at a field or court supporting his grandchildren. He was an avid Michigan State fan and was proud that his granddaughter was an MSU cheerleader. Most of all Dick loved spending time with his family.
