Our sincere condolences to Liz, Nikki and family. I had the pleasure of working for Dick in Indianapolis where he hired me for what turned out to be a 20 year run with SECURA. He was a natural leader who was always down to earth with his staff while staying positive during some challenging times in the early days. I will always cherish our friendship and time working together while remembering his gregarious laughter that would echo through the office and also learning what a bubbler was.

So very sorry to see this about Dick. We consider Dick and Liz to be very special friends. i first meet Dick in our insurance agency, Couri Insurance in Waukesha. We discussed the fact he worked at Economy Fire and Casualty and that started a warmth and bond as I also worked for Economy. Dick helped us open States for agents to sell insurance .He was amazing. When Dick retired from the industry so many of our agents wanted Dick to stay. He was knowledgeable, compassionate, hardworking, and the ultimate problem solver. We had the good fortune to travel with Liz and Dick and those memories are some of the best ever. Dick we love you and will miss beyond words. That very special laugh will ring in heaven loud and clear. God bless my friend, Jerry & Judie Couri
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Liz, We had just met a few years ago, and it was easy to quickly count you both as friends. Dick was so easy going and always smiling. We had a lot in common, and it created a special bond. Our hearts are breaking for yours and Nikki's loss. May his memories always bring you comfort and peace. Our sincere sympathy.

Bernie Rosauer left a message on October 15, 2020:
I was sad to hear of Dick's passing. He hired me many moons ago and was a supportive, energetic, frank, funny guide. He was also a friend. Somehow we always seemed to find a way to end all conversations with a big laugh. His belly laugh was/is unforgettable. Dick provided great perspective that continues to serve me well. It was truly an honor to have worked with him and have him as a friend. Liz and Nikki, as Dick would say: 'Hang in there'. You will meet again. No doubts. Sincerely, Bernie
