  1. It’s amazing how those long-ago connections have such an impact, like the butterfly flutters creating ripples that are felt over generations. Dick Agnew not only ministered to so many at Riverside Baptist Church, more than 44 years ago Dick officiated at our marriage. His moments of love for us, all of those many years ago, will always be a part of us. We send our most sincere condolences at your loss of Dick’s presence but we are confident in God’s promise of continuing life in Heaven. We pray that God will comfort your heart, uplift your spirit, and carry you through this time of loss to a place of peace. Alvin and Patty Flora Sitchler

  2. Dick Agnew was a good, Christian man. He was a dedicated employee to the Air Force mission at the Air Logistics Center at Kelly AFB, TX. We always admired his attitude and cheerful disposition. Most importantly Dick was a believer and we are separated only for a short time until we will see him again in heaven. God bless Jane and the family.–Charles & Pat Jurek

  3. Dick was one of my very best friends who I respected greatly. We worked side by side at Kelly AFB in the 80’s as we accomplished the special tasks assigned to us from Don Lee, our mentor. I learned a lot working wit Dick and he always had a smile on his face. We shared our belief in our faith, especially as we both dealt with the lose of a son and daughter. I love Dick and look forward to the time we will meet again in Heaven. God bless Dick and the entire family. Steve & Carol Doneghy
