Dick graduated from Minneapolis Central High School in 1949 and spent three years in the U.S. Navy. He attended the University of Minnesota, graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering.

Dick was a lifetime learner, an avid reader, a terrific scrabble player, a great cook, baseball fan, enjoyed tennis, golf, chess, poker, bridge, and gin rummy. He also took swimming and piano lessons after retiring! In ways of the spirit, Dick learned from his family, from AA, from Good Samaritan Methodist Church, from the Jesuits at their retreat house, at Golden K, Edina Community Education and the many caregivers at Minnesota Veterans Day Care Center and York Gardens Memory Care Facility. Prayers for a peaceful death and for the hope of Heaven to be real were answered for the family. Romans 15:13- "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Dick's immediate family gathered together to celebrate his life on New Year's Day. Memorials may be sent to Good Samaritan Church, 5730 Grove St., Edina, MN 55436.
