We are so happy to have known Dick Kuhlow. We lived next door for many years and shared so much. I loved having some wine and listening to him tell stories of his Motorola years out on their porch as I had been in the cellular business for 20 years.
He and his wife looked over our farm and dealt with our animals constantly getting loose and hanging out their yard. Poppy the goat would tap on their windows and horses would graze on their lawn. The loud music from our weddings and crowds walking around and through their quiet mountain setting had to be upsetting. They never complained. Dick would say they enjoyed the activities on our property but we knew it had to irritate him a
...little and they were just being polite. Many years ago a wedding guest said they met him in the street having a cigar one night and they asked if he would care to come in to the wedding barn for a drink and he replied with a smile " I don't mind if I do".
Dick was like a grandfather to my three children. They did odd jobs for him and would tell fun and interesting stories of their time with him. He was truly a special man in their minds.
We were so sad when they moved away and now that chapter has ended but the book will be in our hearts forever. We all miss you. R.I.P. Dick.

I considered myself fortunate and blessed to have had "Uncle" Dick as a Trainer and Mentor early in my sales career. He was genuine and caring and positively impacted so many throughout the years. His support and guidance helped me throughout my Motorola career and I still remember and use things I learned from him to this day. Above all else, Dick was a very nice man. My deepest condolences to Sue and his entire family who were lucky to have him in their lives.

Affectionately known as "Uncle Dick" to many Motorola Associates, customers and friends. Uncle Dick loved to help others learn. His classes were lively and interactive with new learning. A favorite slogan of his was "Nothing changes til the pain of change becomes greater than the pain of remaining the same."

So many memories. He always supported us during some rough times. Our best memory will always be the weekly pinochle games ❣️He was the best partner I’ve ever had (Linda). He may have had some trouble with memory but never when it came to pinochle!!! You will be missed !!! 🙏

Motorola, Cleveland Ohio.
Dick was a true professional. We spent many days traveling and training customers salespeople. I enjoyed his company, enthusiasm, and love for his job. A true ‘gentleman.’
