Dear Engelstad family, many fond memories of my friend Dick during our time together in Warren, playing baseball, basketball and football. We also spent a lot of time together in the Twin City's and worked together at Sears optical for a short time. Sharing the same birthday with Dick's sister Patti is also a great memory of mine. Even though many years have passed sense I had spent any time with Dick, he was a very close friend growing up together in Warren and a few years in the Twin City's. I will miss my old friend, God bless his sole

Engelstad Family, I offer my sympathy to all family members. Dick was a special client who I have not seen for some time. We met when I was working with Montavon Motors and he became a good client of mine for many years. I always enjoyed our conversations and his positive, joking attitude even during difficult times. He always had a way of bringing a smile to my face when we saw each other. Great guy and I am sure he will be missed by many. Don Evans
