In 1965, they moved their family to the Chicago area. Dick continued his education at the
University of Chicago and graduated with a master's degree in finance.
He held various executive management positions in the computer aided design industry.
Dick and Margot were blessed with 3 children. They were married for 61 years.
They lived in Illinois for 54 years when they decided to move to Montana in 2019 to be
near family. His unconditional love for Margot and his family was apparent to all.
Dick had an inner strength beyond compare and defied all odds. He was a true friend,
always thinking of others first. His kindness and generosity were never ending. He always
had a positive attitude and a zest for living each day to its fullest.
Dick was a wonderful, thoughtful man who brought happiness into all of our lives.
