I have so many wonderful memories of sharing time with my Dad. I lovingly remember the family vacations we took while growing up. The trips to various colleges when I was deciding where to further my college education but my favorite memories come from our Fall and Spring Break vacations that we took together for the past 20 years. We took 4 days in October and a week in March. Dad, Peggy, Bob and I have vacationed places from Tybee Island Georgia and Pauley's Island South Carolina to Memphis Tennessee, Clarksdale Mississippi, Tunica Mississippi, Hot Springs Arkansas. Every place was special just because I was with my Dad.

I met Dick through his wife, Peggy over 30 years ago. He was such a good man who was always kind to me. I would come to visit in Springfield or they would come to visit me in Kansas City, and we always had a great time full of laughter. The last time I saw Dick in 2015 he said to me "I wondered if I would ever see you again" which of course put a tear in my eye. Dick will always hold a special place in my heart and I will miss him dearly.

I got to know Dick when I worked with Peggy at the Special Ed Office for Spr ingfield Public Schools. Every holiday Dick would bring Peggy a beautiful bouquet of flowers. My husband, Jack, and I shared several fun dinners with Dick and Peggy. When our grandson, Preston, was studying World War II he joined us for dinner and enjoyed listening to Dick tell stories of his experience as a tail gunner in a B17. Dick survived 25 missions thus becoming a lifetime member of the Lucky Bastards Club. Preston was very impressed. Rest In Peace Dick and Jack.

Ed & I will never forget the first day we golfed with Dick & Peggy at Springfield Golf. We had to wait on the people in front of us so we asked if they wanted to join us and they agreed. Ed looked at me and said I think that he was my counselor at Jarrett Jr High. Ed asked Dick and he said he was. Small world! I teed off and my golf ball went left in the bushes and rocks so Dick being the gentleman he was he went looking for my golf ball and sank in mud up to his ankles and he had on brand new golf shoes. Every time we came to that hole after that I would ask Dick if he would get my ball if I hit it in there but I think he got wise and told me I was on my own. LOL! Dick, Peggy, Ed, & I had some fun times together and we will never forget them! Love you! Ed & Donna Scott

Mr. Howell as guidance counselor at Spoon River College was a tremendous help for career direction! Later, during my teaching career in Springfield, MO,, he lectured in my class as guest speaker on guidance and counseling. Thankful for him and Peggy!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
