Dick was the best and a very good friend. I loved stopping by his shop and picking up a magnet or two. He provided my Pa Glen Sippel with broken glass which he used to scrape off paint and finishes from furniture allowing the glorious wood to shine. I too carried on this tradition collecting broken glass and refinishing furniture. Now in Blyth, I have less time to do so but projects are in the works. Dick mounted many pictures I had and they still have pride of place even in my tiny place here. Adelaide Sippel passed in 2006 and Pa in 2020. I remember and we were blessed to have had him in our life.

Dave, I was very sorry to learn today that your father had passed away.
We carry the memories of the special people in our lives by keeping them close in our hearts where we remember their love and the happiness they brought us.
My sincere sympathy to the Brown family.

Sending condolences to the Brown family. It was always a pleasure to have a chat with Dick at the store. I was always impressed to see him riding his bike in his senior years. He put the "bar" rather high for us approaching our senior years. R I P Dick.

Marion & family — I am sorry to learn of Dick’s passing. Although it has been many years since we’ve seen each other, over the years, I’ve often thought of my Forest cousins. I enjoyed meeting Susan & her husband, John, at John’s sisters wedding, in London, Nov./2019.
My partner (deceased Dec./2020) was a good friend of John’s dad, Orville Whitesell. Sincere condolences.
