The couple resided in Virginia Beach for over 40 years.


Dick retired from Beach Ford after 34 years. Dick was the recipient of multiple awards in Ford’s prestigious Legends and Leaders program. Dick was quick witted and had a smile that could make anyone’s day brighter. He enjoyed tinkering with classic old cars, NASCAR races, gardening, the beach and traveling. Dick was known for being kind, generous, and consistently positive.
