"Goody" was a career shoe dog who started at Endicott Johnson in 1968 while in the Army Reserves. Dick stuck with the shoe industry for another 40+ years. He was a hockey fan and played for several years. He was always full of sarcastic humor and jokes. People loved his nicknames that he had for every person he met! Some of his hobbies were model railroading with help from his brother Jack and building birdhouses out of repurposed materials and garden tools.
The family will receive friends at the Coleman & Daniels Funeral Home, 300 E. Main St. Endicott on Friday November 11, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Expressions of sympathy may be made to: Curepsp.org 1216 Broadway 2nd Floor NY, NY 10001 PSP.org/iwanttohelp/ways-to-give/
