Dear Evans family,
You do not know me but Dick was a mentor of mine when I worked with Weyerhaeuser in Buffalo NY. (he called me Buffalo Bobby) I just learned of Dick’s passing the other day and want to send to you my sincerest condolences. I can honestly say that I have never known a man that I had more respect for. I looked forward to his trips to Buffalo to help me prospect potential industrial customers, not because of his tremendous help, but simply for the time that I could spend with him in my car talking about a million and one different things. I never met any one individual that new more about a multitude of subjects than Dick. He was truly the NICEST man that I have ever met. I will miss him tremendously and so will so many others, more than you know!
