I heard from Larry Veneziano at the mid Ohio show last weekend that Dick passed last July and he was another early collector in our great hobby. I remember going to his home and trading and talking insulators for hours in the very early years of my collecting hobby, 1969. He always would have that Chicago glass to trade. Many Jumbos were obtained from him along with Hem 25, 55's, mickeys. Always a great guy. I'm sure many of us old timers remember him too. He also was a sponsor of the Jumbo shows held in St. Charles, Ill.
