A Vietnam Veteran and devoted Clamper.  Dick was very proud of his military service as a Ground Crew Chief. His job was performing repairs and maintenance on the Chinook Twin Blade Rotary Helicopter. DH volunteered his time doing work with the Twilight Brigade and Elizabeth Hospice, as well as many other service related volunteerism.  His proudest and most deeply felt calling were the keychains he made. Made with yellow, green and red beads, they symbolized the “welcome home” that many of the Vietnam veterans didn’t receive when they came home from the Vietnam War.  He worked diligently using his own money and time he was estimated to have made 41,000 key chains!  It was his passion along with the love he had for his family and friends.
