Dick joined the United States Air Force in 1960 and married Phyllis in 1962. He and Phyllis went on to have their 4 daughters. After he left the military in 1968 as a Vietnam Veteran, Dick went on to work for Western Auto, which brought the family to St. Peters, MO in 1976. After leaving Western Auto, he worked in Insurance then sales at Famous Barr (now Macy’s). Dick retired in 2002 after more than 21 years with Famous Barr.
