Richard was from a generation of engineers who didn't need to tell us how clever they were. Their efforts and achievements are around us. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

Given that Pop was an Engineer, I remember on several Halloween evenings him counting the number of children visiting their home for treats. He would gather his "stats" and know the peak times, therefore, how much candy to buy. Pop will be sorely be missed! WWII Veteran, came from the Great Generation, he loved his grand kids, Mary and his family. Our family sends out our heartfelt condolences to you all.

"Pop" was a sharp, capable, loving man and I am so thankful I got to know him just a little bit. His legacy will be one of love and service - something which I will aspire to duplicate. God bless you all with beautiful memories.
Our family sends their love to you all.

My family and myself would like to give our sincerest condolences for the surviving family. Even though I did not know Mr. Bousek to well, from what I learned in the time I did spend with him and his family he was a good man, and is survived by a great and loving family. Our prayers are with you as you go through this tough time.
