He was always kind, patient and supportive of us. We loved our horses and he was always good about helping. Dogs and cats and for a short time a goat and he never said no. He was a very talented woodworker and made our homes welcoming. He always had lots of friends and people coming by to get advice on how to fix things or borrow a tool. So many great memories of a great Dad. We were lucky to have him.  Dick enjoyed snowmobiling, watching NASCAR and football games, and in his younger years golfing. He loved spending time outdoors; but he especially loved being with his family. He owned his own company, Business Machine Company in Lansing.   Dick is survived by his; children, Candice (Len) Hovarter and Jill (Greg) Lueck; significant other, Christine Vejick; grandchildren, Abbie, Josh, Kacie, Alec and Luke He is also survived by siblings, Helen Nalied, Marjorie Harding and Charles Freimund and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
