Dick is survived by his son Richard (Kathleen), daughter Linda (Joseph) Hermann, ten grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, his brother Joseph and sister Dorothy (Thomas).

A devoted husband and father, he spent many years taking the family on vacations and supporting his children in all their interests and pursuits. He was a “handyman” and spent many hours on home improvement projects to make better homes for his family. Dick was an avid sports fan, closely following the Pirates, Steelers and Penguins, always preferring to listen to the games on the radio. Dick started D-M Products, Inc., a successful commercial contact glazing company in 1974 in Bethel Park, PA and continued to work in the office every day until this July. He was extremely proud of the work he accomplished and the relationships he developed throughout the many years.
