  1. I am proud to have worked with Mr Hornick in the traffic and transportation Department. He was instrumental in my development which led to several advancements!! I will forever be thankful for his help.

  2. Dick and I were first cousins–our mothers were sisters. He reluctantly taught me to ride a two-wheeler and we went to the same high school, St. Francis de Sales. Many fond family memories. May he rest in peace. Gerry Sincic Jacobs

  3. Had the good fortune to work with Dick at A.BUSCH . A most loyal employee and a great friend. Always enjoyed being with him at work and “beyond”.
