  1. Dear Pat, Tim, and all members of the Mahns Family. I am very sorry for the loss of your wonderful Dad / Grandfather / Great Grandfather. I know this comes so very soon after the loss of your Mom, and that perhaps makes the loss even greater at this time. Please know that your friends care and I will be including your Dad and your family in my prayers at this time. Your father was part of a great family, and that lives on in support and remembrance forever. God Bless your family

  2. I was very saddened to hear of your Dad’s passing. I wish that I had been able to express my condolences in person, but I am just coming off a knee replacement. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you…


  3. Kevin, sorry to hear about your dad.I remember working for him (way Back) in building M-38. I will say a prayer for you and your family.

  4. My condolences to the Mahns family. Dick was a great man and a long time customer here at Orleans Ford. I sold him a 1983 Chevrolet Impala new when I had just started selling at Molye Chevrolet. He followed me to Orleans Ford and has been a loyal customer and a great friend for many years. He was a stand up man and we all respected him and loved him dearly. I am very sincere when I say we will miss him greatly. If there is anything that I can do for the family please don’t hesitate to ask.

  5. Pat and family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you, always, but especially now with the passing of your father. Your Mom and Dad are in heaven now. I know you have lots of wonderful memories to carry you through.
    I send a great, big hug.

  6. So sorry to hear of Dick’s passing. I’m sure John was waiting for him so he could introduce him to ‘Dr. Green’.

  7. So sorry to hear of this loss. I remember all of the good times at Kodak. I considered Dick as one of my best friends.

  8. To All of Didk’s family and Janet Davis,
    My/Our memories of Dick were of great generousity and love to all. We are better people to have known him. He shared so many aspects of his life weather it was family, friends, work or teaching. Warren knew him through his feild of work, and I was in awe of them as a couple and loved to sing Christmas Caroles around the piano when I was a little girl. God be with you Dick. Thanks
