I was an engineer at IH/Navistar for 20 years. Early in my career,I was placed on a training program in the Metallurgy Laboratory where Dick worked as a Metallurgist. He took me under his wing and taught me a great deal in his field. He was very kind, knowledgeable, and patient. He became a friend. Even later when I worked for Dana Corporation, I often consulted with Dick and he was always glad to help.
