Dick played sports in high school and was a huge Chicago sports “Super Fan”. He liked to watch the Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks and the Chicago White Sox. He also enjoyed a day at the racetrack. You could always find him watching sports, but mostly he loved to watch his granddaughters play softball and basketball.

He was the beloved son of the late Oliver and Judith Carpenter. Dear brother of the late Bill Carpenter. Loving uncle to Dawn Samet, Dean Carpenter, and Sarah (Chris) Wadsworth.
