Dick was my Sgt on the TEU. He was the best boss I had. He went smelting with me one night after work and the two of us had a ball. I could tease him and he could give me the best funniest shots and we would be both laughing for a while. Take care my friend and know that God will welcome you into his Kingdom for you served Him and your community in the highest standards of a Milwaukee Police Sergeant and a true Christian.

To the family of Dick, my condolences. Dick was the finest Sergeant I had on the TEU. We even went smelting one evening after work and had a ball. We could tease each other and laugh at each other and keep our lives both professional and friendly. He was one of the most classiest persons I ever knew. God bless you Dick and may He hold you in His arms and give you comfort. You truly deserve it. Mark and Diana Galaszewski
