I had the opportunity of being involved on the fire department with Dick for many years, and can’t say enough about how much of an impact he had on the department with his involvement. It was always a pleasure to work with Dick and he was more than likely to bring a smile to your face with his great sense of humor. Deepest sympathy, along with thoughts and prayers to the Ott family.
