  4. Received The Benevolent Flash, Sorry to read of Dick’s passing. As we joined the SFD same year and were members of Smithtown Presbyterian Church, the memories of our young lives were wonderful to share. Especially great to follow his SFD career though the years and seeing Dick and Ginny at the FASNY Convention, when he was awarded Fireman of the Year for NYS.
