Dick was an avid reader of history. He had a special interest in breweries of the past in the upper Midwest having worked at Northern Brewery. He had a great love of cars. Attending car shows and talking cars of all vintages. Driving the back roads in his collector Lexus was a real high for Dick! An important part of life was the comradery with his friends at morning coffee sessions. Over the years Dick enjoyed playing baseball, snowmobiling, bowling and golf. He looked forward to golfing with his friends and son Rick. Dick and Anne had many good time road trips to music fests, U.P. Fall color tours and winter break get aways south.
Dick was a never wavering MN Vikings fan since their inception in 1961. Completing a bucket list of being to all three of their stadiums with a tour of the "Beautiful Purple" new stadium. His other love was walking his four legged friends on local trails and through the neighborhood over the years.
