On behalf of all the people and agencies in Ketchikan Dick has touched we thank you. Dick definitely changed the way many of us were able to get our news and voice our opinions. He made it all look effortless, and easy, but those who watched him knew he was always spending countless hours out there getting us the news as fast and quick as he could.

There are many among us which did not know that this awesome man buzzing around town taking photos, taking notes, and answering our emails and calls was really quietly famous. He was a true champion who never let us down.

Dick got it all on Sitnews within hours will the wonderful help of his lovely wife Mary. I can't count the times they have spent editing and improving many of my own articles. There aren't many in the field who will do that with so many other things to do.

Sitnews will go on as you wish Dick because Ketchikan is your community, and we will help Mary do it.

Thank you Dick for all your time and quiet efforts in Ketchikan, and throughout Southeast Alaska. Rest Peacefully.
