Yes Folks, we celebrate yet another unique member of the Hacklebarney family.

This member of the month for June is Dick Hepper, Hacklebarney's Minister of Discipline.  Dick has to be one of Hacklebarney's most senior members.  He was born in 1843, and served in the Northern Army in the Civil War.  

Gotcha.  Dick is 90, but I bet you believed it for a second.  

The funny thing is, Dick can still out-cast and out-tie half the members, and he still shows up to any and all meetings unless he is on a fishing trip.  He puts more time in on the water than most as well.  God bless this man!

 Dick's not afraid of getting dirty when there's work to be done.  Here he is hooking up his propane tank.

Dick can tell a story with the best of the them, and in true fisherman form, most are, well, embelleshed.

If you havent met Dick, just ask him about Ted Williams, and he'll keep you entertained for half an hour.  

Of all the guys from the chapter my wife has had the pleasure of meeting at the banquet, Dick is her favorite.
