I was recently told that Dick died in January or February of 2008...
Dick was a long time, dear friend of my father. Unfortunately (for both of them) they had a falling out many years back due to a third person driving them apart.
He was in the Printing Industry in and around Montreal for many years.
Eventually retiring to the Laurentian community of Laurel (near Lost River and Carling Lake), an area that he had rented a summer cottage at since ~ early 1970's and an area which my father had introduced him to..
I recently heard that he sold his Laurel home a number of years back and moved closer to St. Jerome, Quebec; perhaps for health reasons.
Last night I was informed that he died early this year (2008 January/February perhaps), likely of some form of cancer. He leaves his wife Theresa (spelling ??) who now lives in LaSalle, Quebec.
Thanks Graeme B.
