Dear Hessel Family, I am an old student of Dick's from The University of Cincinnati. Dick was one of the most influential teachers I ever had. He gave me words of encouragement when I worried about my status as a mere night school student vs. the full time day engineering students. I went on to work with and was every bit as good an engineer as those from MIT and other top schools. Also I was in the US Peace Corps as a teacher emulating my past good teachers like Dick, teaching Math and Physics first in Kenya for four years then again recently in Uganda for three years. I will keep you and Dick in my prayers. Take care and may God Bless. mike-siener

Dear Connie, Andrea, Kendra and to all the Hessel Family; We are so very sorry for your loss of such a 'gentle giant'... Dick was my husbands best friend and hiking buddy; I wished I had gotten to know him and all of you better. Please know he will forever be missed by us; our hearts are with you during this very difficult time. -Guin & Korbin Van Dyke
