So sorry to hear this Dick was a great guy, athlete. and tough guy. He was always fun to be around and a great friend to have around in case of trouble. He also could really shoot pool. He hustled my dad one night at the bowling alley not knowing it was my dad and my dad didn't know I knew Dick well. My dad came home after bowling complaining that some young guy had taken about twenty dollars from him playing pool. I asked if the guys name was Dick and described him and my Dad said :How did you know?" I told him I knew Dick well since the fifth grade and that he makes some good money at the bowling alley.hustling folks. My Dad laughed and said "Well he got me!" I absolutely hate hearing about good friends that pass but I suppose we had all better get used to hearing it more often. God speed Dick

I still clearly recall the day I became acquainted with Dick: a weekday afternoon in September 1963 when he and I had just started sophomore year. It was at the beginning of fifth hour gym class when Dick came up to begin conversation. I always admired him for his athletic ability. We didn't share any classes for the remainder of our time at Lakeview but did interact occasionally for some years after high school. After I left Battle Creek in 1972, I didn't come across him for the next twenty some years. His sister, Joni, married my youngest brother, Ken in Summer 1988 and they remained married until her passing in early August 2006. That was a few days before the class's 40th reunion, where I talked with Dick and was introduced to his wife. I last saw him about two days following the reunion when his and my family gathered for a dinner at Ken's home. Though it goes without saying; I'll say it anyway: Dick Greenway was a great guy and will be greatly missed by many.
