A lifelong resident of South Glens Falls, Dick graduated high school in 1949 and then spent 4 years in the Navy.

Even after his own children had graduated, he continued an interest in school activities by active participation in the Booster club with mini banquets, championship banners, jackets and patches. He also supplies Honor Society Medallions and several varsity sports awards for seniors. He was an integral part of the marathon dance since its inception over 30 years ago.
