Dick met his wife Beverly Cook, the love of his life, at Central Michigan University and were married June 23rd, 1951. Dick’s first passion was his family, and his second passion was basketball. He was a teacher and Varsity basketball coach, building successful programs in Frederic, Sebewaing, Flint Bendle, Mancelona, and Holly high schools for 30 years, touching many of the lives of his students and players. He was inducted into the Michigan Basketball Coaches’ Hall of Fame in 1987 as well as the Holly Coaches’ Hall of Fame in 2006. Dick also served in the United States Air Force. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, golfer, and spent most of his life at Higgins Lake, the lake he dearly loved. Dick will be deeply missed by everyone that knew him.
