    I worked for or with Dick Frey in different life underwriting capacities for over 15 years at CNA Life Ins. He was a great mentor and friend. A good man, a great boss, always there with a happy smile, a quick joke, and encouragement when needed. We lost touch when he left CNA. He will be missed, but never forgotten.
