Remembrances:

  • Colette Kaun, Robert Kaun, Carmen Garraghan says:

    Dick was such a good friend to our late husband and father, Andy Garraghan. They enjoyed their American Legion activities together as well as the Wednesday card club. Dick was a kind, caring man who will be sorely missed. We feel privileged to have known him. Our deepest condolences.
