After a battle with cancer, Dick passed away peacefully Monday morning at his home in Galveston with his wife and family by his side.
Dick was a giant of a man with a heart to match. Dick’s commitment to community service shone brightly for decades throughout the Lighthouse Charity Team founded by him and his wife, Horacene. Dick’s passion for helping others in the community at times was a personal financial strain, but he always said, “There’s more to life than dollars and cents”.
Dick always had a welcoming smile, firm handshake and a willing ear to listen. He never met a stranger as he believed that “a stranger is someone that is not yet a friend”.
Details for Dick’s funeral arrangements follow:
Visitation, Crowder’s Funeral Home, Pearland
Service, Mary Queen Catholic Church, Friendswood
Graveside Service, Forest Park, League City
Celebration of Life, Mary Queen Fellowship Hall, Friendswood 1:30 pm

People Helping People – Cooking for a Cause
The Lighthouse Charity Team was founded on a love of cooking and feeding others. Like many Texans our experience began in the backyard with the brick pit where we smoked brisket, ribs, turkey and more. Now, we cook for cause. In fact we cook for many causes. Lighthouse Charity Team provides mobile food preparation trailers, trucks and volunteer labor to charitable organizations as well as emergency response to natural and man-made disasters.
Our loyal volunteers and donors invest themselves in many projects from raising money for non profits to participating in hands on programs to assist low income families and the elderly. We always look for ways we can make a difference in the life of our neighbors.
