    I remember Richard as the best basketball player ever. In addition to being a great player, he was great person to be around. Condolences go to Joyce and the rest of the Shipwright family from the members of the Dick Engelbart family.

    I have fun memories of Dick while working at Lex Stare Bank!
    One being our bus trip to the football game. I’m Thinking of your
    Family. May your memories help you get thru this difficult time!
