Dick was a wonderful man that touched many lives, mine included. He will be deeply missed and I will always treasure the time that I enjoyed talking with him while he entertained with his wonderful sense of humor. He was a very caring and a beloved friend.

Marcia and Family, I was very saddened to read of Dick’s passing. He was a great man, as well as, a wonderful mentor to me. I was grateful to have worked for him at TV Fanfare as a proud member of “Killeen’s Marines”. Dick happily beat me all the time at Liar’s Poker. You both trusted me to watch your dogs (Darby & Bailey, if I remember correctly) and stay at your lovely home. May peace and love be with you always. Keep the faith! Respectfully, Keith Hertz

Marcia and family, I am so saddened to hear of Dick’s passing. He was warm, funny, caring and a real man. The old Goldwater’s days were made more special because of him. I send you my sympathy, blessings and love.

Ms Killeen, I am Nicole’s mother and Annika’s grandmother. Mr Killeen was a wonderful friend to Nicole, and you both have shown great support for my girl. That means so much to a mom so far away. Nicole will miss him very much. We are so sad. Sincerely, Ginger

Dick was a great guy and good friend. We lost touch over the years but did speak after his transplant. I always told him during our days at the Prep that he had the best hair of all of us. Cut preppy short it made him look like a movie star. In later years a number of us copied it–may the Good Lord bless you all and I know he is in a better place where one day,hopefully ,we’ll all join him.

I’ll never forget Dick. He was an outstanding member of the Class of 1955 at St John’s Prep;very popular and respected. We didn’t have an award for best dresser but if we did he would have owned it.When I last saw him I told him that since the statute of limitations had run I could admit that I “borrowed” a couple of his preppy ties. I didn’t speak with Dick often but when I did I was always moved by his absolute honesty about his journey in life, the obstacles he overcame and his love for his family His words to me were a gift. I will always be grateful for the time he came back to the Prep to be part of my award ceremony. RIP, good man and great friend. To Marcia and the Kileen family- please accept Eileen’s and my prayers and condolences. Dave Perini.
