Like Gary Frisk, I was also a boyhood friend of Dick Decker. I cherish the time I spent with Dick, when we grew up together in Hammondsport, NY. May God bless and keep you, my frIend, until we meet again. Dick Decker, rest in eternal peace.

I just found out about Richards passing. How sad. So sorry I missed his funeral. I worked with him at Williams Honda for a long time.

He was a wonderful guy. We grew up in the same village, and I had a lot of respect for him. Sending sincere sympathy to his family.
