  1. Mr. Dickman was one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. He was a wonderful mentor to me and my friends as we were growing up, spending time with his sons at their house on Stocker Rd. He was a fantastic father and a wonderful husband, and to me, he really set an example of how to be a good man. He was funny, wise, humble, strong – he was the best. He taught me a lot. I miss him already.

  2. Dr. Dickman was my dentist for over 30 years. I took my son to him when he was only 4 years old and now my son in 31. My two brothers and two sisters also went to him. You can say we all grew up with him. We all loved him and he was the best dentist we ever went to. When you sat in that chair he made you feel so relaxed talking to you about weather, sports anything he could think of. There will never be another dentist as good as he was. We will miss him very much. There will never and I mean never be another like him.
