  • Dick was one of the nicest men I remember at Rockland Golf Course! He was always encouraging and almost always had something nice to say to women about golf and life. I remember learning a lot of good things from him. He formed a Women's Golf League in which we were always made to feel welcome - no matter our skill level. Very nice man with a good sense of humor. One of a kind! Susan Marple
