Richard (Dick) Clary
Feb 24, 2019
So sorry to learn of the passing of my good friend of long ago. Dick and I worked at DuPonts together in the late 50's. We both had canoes and loved being on the river, hunting, fishing etc. Quick story. In 1957 Dick decided to go to Phoenix, Az. on his vacation. He told his friends, "if I find a job out there I'm not coming back". Two weeks later he was back at work. Says," that place will never amount to anything". Good for you all that he couldn't find work out here. Yes, ironically, I have lived here for 46 years..Dick was a fun guy, loved his sense of humor. Rest in peace old friend.
