Dick was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Blair, Nebraska and Lodi, California. The Lutheran Church has been his moral compass since he was baptized as an infant by his father. After graduating from college he enjoyed a thirty year sales career with AAA. In 1987 Dick and his wife Nileta, purchased a second home in Carnelian Bay, CA and were blessed to join Christ the King Lutheran Church who's mission is "Caring- Reaching-Teaching, Sharing Christ's Love". In 2003 we made North Lake Tahoe our retirement home. Dick's passions are, serving The Lord, Volunteering, Sailing, Photography and Woodworking. Dick's favorite Bible Verse is Joshua 24:15:
"As for me and my household we will serve the Lord"
"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
