  • What a great friend and business partner was Dick Greer. It is hard to put into words what Dick meant to those of us who knew him. His inviting smile and genuine warmth toward everyone he met made you feel like he truly cared for you as a person, and he did. He will be missed by all his friends and his family. It was a true honor to have known him. God bless you Dick.

  • Although I have not talked to Dick in many years we had some great times back in High School. I remember Dick as being a very fun loving friend and I am sure he will be truly missed. Rest In Peace my old friend.

  • Josh and the rest of the Greer family I am so sorry for your loss. We lose our parents to soon and they are always to young

  • My thoughts and prayers are with Dick’s family and friends during this time. To know Dick was to know love and spending time with Dick was your chance to experience a lust for life. Dick was a friend, mentor, coach, adviser, and a true sweetheart who will be missed. So many fun memories come to mind as I remember him… hours at Bob Evans in meetings, trips to Vegas, the Continent, Dick’s Big Deck, sitting at the wooden table in the kitchen working on deals, the Sunrise Mortgage Christmas parties, the laughter and fun was always there …those were the days. Dick will be missed but the memories will remain in my heart forever.

  • What great friend. He lit up my life. We had great pool nights at his apartment with John Houser. We played flag football. We camped up at Lake Erie. Fished for perch on Lake Erie with his grandfather. We sold real estate together. We would start our day playing and singing to Bachman Turner Overdrive ‘Taking Care of Business’. What energy he brought to my life. Love this man. Heaven is gaining a wonderful soul!

  • Dick was an amazing man, my mentor, and such a beautiful soul. I first met Dick at his “office” (Bob Evans Lol).
    As I was walking in to work, Dick met me on the sidewalk going in. We were preparing for our corporate guys to come in that day. Dick was dressed in a suit and tie and happily played along with me assuming that he was a “corporate” guy. Once I relayed this information to my manager, I was finally set straight. Lol!
    Over the years we became friends and he introduced me to the Mortgage and Real Estate Business.
    I learned many things from Dick and the most important was to always be kind and always have a good time.
    He was one of a kind and he will be missed ❤️

    Prayers to Josh and Justin and family 🙏🏻❤️

  • Trina, I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad to have met Dick and had the chance to share a laugh or two with him. You both were lucky to have each other.

  • My sincerest condolences to Dicks family.Ryan you know what I thought of Dick and his entire family.Those of you who don’t know Dicks grandmother and grandfather lived next door and Dick and Betty ,Steve and Harold lived in the next house where TSC is in Marion.I spent more time at their house than I did at my own.They were literally like family to me.Dicks uncle Tom Morgan was a mentor to me so yes I adored those people.They may have gotten pretty tired of me hanging around but never showed it.May Dick be reunited in peace with the members of his family who have passed.

  • My sincere sympathy to the family. I went to school with Dick and remember him to be a smiley, happy guy. I’m sure my brothers, Bill, John and Jim Millisor hung out with Dick and Steve. May your memories bring you comfort at this difficult time.

  • So sorry for your loss. I remember Dick sitting at our kitchen table on Richland Road in Marion visiting with my sister, Jackie, me and our Mom. That is probably the last time I saw him around 1970. He was friends with our brother, Kerry, in high school. He really enjoyed people. He will be missed by many.

  • It is very hard to picture a world without Dick Greer. Dick introduced me to the mortgaged real-estate business over 35 years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday. May you Rest In Peace dear brother you will be truly missed. Dave Columber… Gulf Shores, Alabama

  • Sorry to hear of Dick’s passing. As a newcomer to the central Ohio area back in the early seventies he and Jack were my college classmates. It wasn’t long until I became their roommate and the good times rolled on. Dick always had a terrific sense of humor and was the life of the party. Hardly a day has gone by without thinking of Dick and the Marion “Group”. He will be greatly missed!!!

  • So sorry to hear of the passing of Dick. I am secretary/treasurer of the Greer Family Reunion that is in its 70th year. Sincere condolences to his family.
