My gosh, Dick has been a life long friend and a memory in my mind since Jr. High. So many memories working together at early days of Donato's. Great memories too! He was just down to earth of a person and I believe he will live forever in the minds of so many that he touch. God truly blessed us with a great human being with Dick. God Bless his family.

Dick was one of the nicest, most genuine guys I have ever met. It didn't matter your color, age, race, rich or poor, wrong or right side of the track, he treated everyone like you were the king of the world. I will never forget his character, someone like himself is what anyone in this world strives to be, great family man, great businessman and just an overall good soul. He will definitely be missed but a person like him will never be forgotten, RIP Dick, hope there is some cold beers, lakes stocked with largemouth bass, and all the corvettes you can handle.

Our hearts go out to Jan, Teri & Randy along with their families. We both had the good fortune and privilege to work for and with Dick not only in the Bell System but Capital communication Concepts as well. Dick had the ability to look at the whole picture so to speak to run the business and make working at Capital Communication Concepts fun and a honor to do so. He touched our lives personally as well with a friendship for the past 45 years. Dick brought out the best in each person he connected with. Our prayers are with the family. Fay & Connie

My love and prayers go out to the entire Roshon family. Dick was an amazing man-one that you couldn't help but smile around. He always asked about me and greeted me with a hug and a smile. He will be missed by so many, but his light will shine eternally. Heaven just gained a wonderful angel.
