3 Condolences to Richard Christ Tanczos

  1. George Rhodes says:

    So sorry to hear of Dick’s passing. Dick and I worked together at General Dynamics for many years. We spent many hours over those years workings proposals together. As a person I admired his sense of humor – he always had a way to bring a smile to many even in the those moments of tension trying to meet a tight deadline. As an avid golfer, I can only hope he will make a “hole-in-one” on the new course in heaven. Dick was a good person and I am glad I had the honor to know him. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend due to travel but I will keep him in my prayers. George Rhodes
