Dick was an avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed hunting and fishing. He hunted everything from Morel Mushrooms, to Big game hunts. He especially enjoyed spending time at his hunting camp "Camp Umbar" with his daughters, grandkids and long time family friend Derek Bingman. Camp Umbar was Dicks favorite place to be and to tell hunting stories while drinking beer. He enjoyed every minute he had with his family and teaching his grandkids riddles and to swear. Dick was a strong willed, straight forward, no nonsense guy and you knew where you stood with him. He was known for his quick wit and one liners that are referred to as "Dickism". Everywhere he went he knew someone and had such a strong presence along with his handshake. Dick and Naomi taught their daughters to be independent and strong. Behind his demeanor was an honest, caring and compassionate man. There will never be another Dick Frelick!
