Earl and I are sorry to see that Richard has passed away. He and I were always in line together because of our last names (Stratton and Sundquist). He was always friendly and had a smile for everyone.

Our condolences to the family.

It is ironic that Dick passed away the day after our high school class's 55th reunion. I first met Dick in junior high school knew him through high school. I then worked with him at JDHW. I would run into him in the community and he was always, over all those years, a nice and easy going guy. Easy to talk with. I'm sure he will be greatly missed by those who were closest to him and all who were fortunate enough to have known him.

I saw Dick one time wearing a "Tennessee" shirt.  I asked him if he had ties to that state and he said he did, that his brother was the Governor of Tennessee.  I thought he was joking, but he said, no.  He was serious.  Sure enough, his brother Don, MHS Class of 1953 served as Tennessee's governor from 1994 to 2002.  Don is a member of the Moline High School Hall of Honor.
