Memories Timeline


  1. Dick was one of my favorite bosses while at Kodak. He always had a way of making me feel important. He will be missed.

  2. Just learned of Mr Murney’s passing. He and my Dad Art Guentner are now having fun together upstairs. I’m very sorry for your loss. Sending prayers for your peace.

  3. I just found out from a family member, Joell, that Dick had passed away. I knew him well from my early days at Kodak being an Expeditor and later on I had an ‘Assignment’ in Material Services. Dick was just a fine person and was always a pleasure to be associated with.
