To the Beautiful Family of Dick Eggert: My heartfelt condolences to ALL. Dick was a wonderful man... a sincere and dedicated leader. Dick was also very compassionate and honest. His caring mentorship/leadership was extremely critical in developing my career. After Dick's retirement, we grew closer in our relationship and had frequent visits, dinners with he and Abby, and weekly (at least) phone conversations. It was during these times his truly unique humor became obvious. I WILL MISS Dick IMMENSELY!!! Bob Walsh
