I had the privilege of working with Dick at the AARP Tax Aide site in Canton. Dick volunteered with this program for 20 years, providing free tax return preparation for elderly and low income people from Canton and the surrounding communities. He was a wise and caring man, and everyone on our team will miss him dearly. Linda Dryansky
