There are 58 counties in California. Each one of those counties has at least one law library. In Del Norte County, the law library is located inside the Courthouse.
For the past number of years, Dick would drive up from Eureka several days a week to help out those needing advice and guidance on fighting legal battles.
Paralegal, Linda Sutter, says this about him, “He had a real passion for the law.”
He had heart surgery a year ago and after a long recuperation, came back to the law library. He knew he was living on borrowed time.
Wes Nunn remembers Dick as, “The guy with a crusty disposition with a real heart of gold. Dick would come off as cantankerous as hell, and then bend over backwards to help people.”
He will be missed.
