Dick Branch maintained the Kalamazoo Co. MIGenWeb site from 2000-2007. He enjoyed working on the Kalamazoo Co. website and it showed in the excellent work that he did. He constantly worked to better the site, checked his sources well and tried his best to make the pages load faster for the researcher.
Dick was a friend to all who knew him. He was always lending a helping hand
with tips, ideas and sending out other county coordinators information that
he had found for their websites. It takes a very special person to be that
dedicated to his own work and that of others. Dick was that special person
and he will be missed by all who knew him.
