Dick spent is life in Forsyth, graduating from high school and attending college. He was a heavy equipment operator for many years, working for F & T Construction and Western Energy. Farming and Ranch was his real life work. He loved farming and ranching more than anything. He was a hardworking man. He enjoyed the outdoors: hunting, riding horses, working cattle, running the tractor and heavy equipment. His resting time was spent sitting at the table outside his house. He enjoyed all sports, too. He was a champion Wrestler and Football player in his younger days. Dick was always willing to give a helping hand to his neighbors, friends and family.

To my kids: Don’t sit around feeling sorry for yourselves. Make do with what we have. Respect others. Dream, work, and fight for a brighter future. Never judge a person until you’ve walked in his shoes. If you fall, you can’t go anywhere unless you get up. Winning isn’t everything, it’s how the game is played, fair and honest. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, if you did your best, that’s all that is asked. When all goes wrong for no apparent reason, there maybe a “Greater” force governing.
