Dick was born in Valentine, Nebraska, on November 14, 1927, to Herbert and Irene Richards Piper.

He's been married 37 years to Angie Serrano Piper, combining six children and many grandkids and great-grandkids as well as a number of loyal pets.

Between the ages of 8-16, Dick helped support his family by working on cattle ranches. He is a proud Veteran of the U.S. Navy serving aboard a repair ship during World War II. As a boy Dick dreamed of becoming a cowboy, and so he did. As a young man he competed eight years in the Rodeo Circuit's Bareback Bronc riding events. He retired after 45 years as a professional driver for Buckingham, Parnell Green, IML & Overnight.

Today Dick spends his days with Angie and his four legged pal, Primo. He'll offer a cup of coffee and a story to anyone who drops by; he has a million of them.

We love you Dick and wish you a very

Happy Birthday!
