Dick is my oldest brother, I lost him when he was much to young and really miss him and also my 2nd oldest brother Bruce. I hope to see them in heaven one day. Dick was married to Deborah Johnson and had 2 sons Robert Meryl Esterline who passed the same year Dick did and Richard Carl Esterline Jr. "Ricky" who lives in Elkhart with his wife Roxanne Sanders Esterline they gave Dick two grandsons Justin Michael in 1997 and Aaron Robert in 2000. He would have been the happiest man alive to have known them. He loved his kids very much in fact his whole family. He will be missed! Dick was a Corp. in the Marine Corps. and was in Vietnam. Bruce was in the Army in Vietnam and went there 6 mos. after Dick and tried to get Dick to go home early but Dick wanted Bruce to go home early, both wanted to protect the other so they just stuck it out together. Brotherly love.
