  1. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to talk with you at our station last year. I wish I would have had more time to hear your stories. As a Marine and a Firefighter I am certain that I would have found them fascinating.

  2. Uncle Dick will be missed dearly; he, his brothers and sister were one very great generation of elders to all of us. They shaped how we as a family are, our character, values and approach to life. I am proud to be a Quinn and to have such a wonderful legacy of our parents, uncles and aunt to cherish as we continue in life. They were great, loving people to all of us and those they came across in their lives. We will miss you Uncle Dick. Give our best and love to those you join. Love Paul Daniel

  3. We offer our sincere sympathy to all of your family for your loss. May you find comfort in all of your beautiful memories and the legacy your father leaves behind.
    with our love and prayers,
    Ed Dyminski & Cindy Christian
