Dearest Dawn and Family,
Our most sincere condolences to all of you. We will miss "Dick" and all the special times we had with him at the Smoke House and the challenge of the "golf" game and his geninue love for all his friends and his art of smoking fish. We love you both and our prayers are lifted on your behalf.
You promised me the day you were diagnosed that you wouldn't give up the fight and each and everyday that's what you did until the very end. I looked forward to seeing you and your smile even when you didn't feel like smiling you always had one for me. And a kiss on my hand. You will forever be in our heart's.
Love your Daughter Dawn

Dear Aunt Dawn -- my heart goes out to you at this time of loss. We will all miss Uncle Rich in Minnesota! We will never forget the many visits to Minnesota, camping at Crosslake, and all of the stories around the campfire. Scott, Jenny & Katie will always remember how Uncle Rich would let them pick out any stuffed animal they wanted in the "claw machine" and he would win it for them! Even though we can't be with you, our thoughts and prayers are with you!

When Wanda and I owned The Landing Restaurant Dick sold us those wonderful smoked hams that our customers enjoyed. Both he and Dawn were good customers of ours. He will be missed by us and his many many friends
Hi Dawn and family. Richard the old duffer will be missed. Instead of a candle I will offer a golf ball,and a big hug instead.

My deepest sympathies go out to you and yours. Uncle Dick, as I have known his my entire life, will be greatly missed. He was a wonderful man, husband, father, brother, and friend with great talents in the food industry, art, and golf. I will forever cherish the wonderful memories with him at the Smokehouse that I was priviliged to have throughout much of my childhood. My thoughts and prayers are with you all and may you rest in peace dear Uncle Dick we love and miss you.
Dawn, Taylor and I are so sorry for the loss of your husband, Dick. We are so glad we got to see him on our visit to Sandpoint in July, just 3 months ago. I know how you are hurting right now and I just wanted you to know how sorry we are for your loss. God bless you.

Sorry for the loss of a very good friend. If you need any help please call Butch 503.380.3002. We were in Idaho over Labor day weekend and tried to call several times because we wanted to stop in and say HI. We were a little disappointed to find out he was very ill the family knew and no one told us about it until he was gone.
We have been away along time and are sorry for it but finances would not allow for a trip away.
Please call Dawn when things settle down a bit.
We love you and will keep you in our prayers.
We know that Dick had a faith in his heart for God and the Bible.
" To be absent from the body is to be present with Christ"
He is now in the presence of the angels and the Lord we will see him again someday.
Love Butch and Bonnie Johnson
Delmar and Lorene Palmer
Dawn we are so sorry to hear of Dick's passing. Had tried to call you several times but knew you must have been with Dick at the nursing home.
Think of the good times you had through the years. He is now at peace without pain and suffering.
Love your Cousins

It was always a pleasure to visit with you both, and the smoked meats were a favorite. We will miss Dick, and we hope to have the opportunity to visit with you, Dawn. Take care of yourself.
Dick was a very good friend and always made me laugh. I'm sorry I couldn't attend his service. Quite a guy. My thoughts are with Dick's family.
