Donna, Terry (Jack) and Dicks many nieces and
nephews, so sorry for your loss. Dick was a cousin of my husbands, Daniel L. Haws. I heard many good stories of the Thacker and Haws cousins. Dick always had a smile and will be missed by many. Our sincere condolences to the family.
Janice and sons Michael (Lori) and Mark Haws
