Richard Sawyer, My Friend

 DICK SAYWER 7.5x10 DSCN6880
My old friend Dick, passed away last night.
He was the best.
The linked pix are of some of the things we worked on together.
The patches of the POW camps where Dick spent a lot of time after being shot down on the 26th mission in a B-17, were patches I made for his museum in Tucson, Arizona.
The paintings commissioned by Dick to give to some of his crew members I enlarged from slide transparencies.
He was generous to a "T" to both myself & Teri.
I`ll be missing him.

The projects I worked on with Dick spanned about five years.
I have a wardrobe of clothes that he gave me with all the logos & badges I created for him.
Hats, sweatshirts, hoodies(?) jackets, shirts.
