Editor's note: Each Sunday, The Herald-Mail publishes "A Life Remembered. " This continuing series takes a look back -- through the eyes of family, friends, co-workers and others -- at a member of the community who died recently. Today's "A Life Remembered" is about Richard C. "Dick" Shain, who died July 23 at the age of 63. His obituary was published July 29 in The Herald-Mail. In the 1960s, "Sears has everything" was a popular commercial catch phrase. It seems Sears had just what Dick Shain was looking for -- he found his future wife, Mary Willson, working at the Sears switchboard when he was selling carpet for the chain store at night.

The hat would spin around. Choice words would fly. Look out! Baltimore Orioles manager Earl Weaver was livid again. Orioles fans stopped at Sears on Saturday to get Weaver's autograph and think about the good ol' days. Weaver was a celebrity attraction for the grand opening of the new Sears that opened Thursday at Valley Mall. There wasn't time to bring up each of the 90-plus times Weaver was ejected from a game; that might have taken all day.
