Dick Lantz became and business partner with his son, Doug, at Lantz Custom Woodworking in 1999 and worked in sales and office management until he retired in 2012.  Even after retirement, Dick continued to be involved in the business as long as his health allowed.  In March of 2018 he passed.  His enthusiasm for Lantz Custom Woodworking is definitely missed.
