It is our sad duty to report that Richard "Dick" O'Connell, long time President of Mass. Chapter XIII passed away on Nov. 10th after a lengthy illness. Dick was former Secret Service and retired from U.S. Customs & Immigration. In 2012, when the chapter could have folded, he stepped up and took the reins as President and helped rebuild it . He will be missed by all. Ride with pride Dick!
