I knew Dick from back in the early 90's when we were both working at the King County Surface Water Management Division.
In the fall of 2004 he hired me do to a programming project at Sammplat, which I finished just about a year ago. He was a great guy and a real big help to my career. My current position at Jones and Stokes I got because he recommended me to the GIS guy I work with.
I am still speechless about this.
