Dick attended Altoona High School and served in the U.S. Navy. He retired from Robert Haney Inc. as a foreman with 31 years of service. He was a member of the former Fourth Lutheran Church, Altoona.
After retirement, Dick enjoyed painting, landscaping and building model cars. He loved spending time with his family during their yearly vacations in the Outer Banks on Hatteras Island and working construction with his sons daily.
