I knew Dick from the movies. I worked there for 30 years, so I saw him at least once a week. He never watched a movie from start to finish. He always came in mid-way through the movie, watch the second half of the movie, then stay over and watch the beginning of the next show until he got to the point in the movie where he started. He always talked sports and movies and used to like to give new employees, who were just teenagers, a hard time. He was a character. Sorry for your loss. Christal Bacon
