Dick retired from a distinguished career of 20 years in the United States Air Force in June 1982. His early career began as a B-52 Stratofortress navigator. He served during the Vietnam War and later became a key member to the research and development team for the B-52 upgrades that have kept that "Global Warrior" serving our country to this day. After retirement Dick continued his second career in the aviation industry working with companies such as Lear Siegler, Litton Industries, Northrop Grumman Corp., Demo Systems and Teledyne Controls.
In his early years of fatherhood, he was always involving his kids in many activities like scouting, music and sports. He believed that this would allow them the opportunities to have a better appreciation for life's many lessons. As a lover of many different sports, he never wavered when it came to allowing the kids to attempt different sports. Sports like snow skiing, water skiing, soccer, baseball, basketball, gymnastics, football and the family sport: bowling. He was a skilled bowler, having bowled two 300 games during his bowling career. With today's ease of technology, family and friends could always expect to hear from Dick before the big game of one of his favorite teams, including his alma mater, the North Dakota State University Bison.

David Mulholland

Fargo Forum

Former Gopher standout Mulholland dead at 58
By Kevin Schnepf
Forum Sports Editor

When Dave Mulholland was a 14-year-old spending some time at a summer camp in 1954, he sent a postcard to his parents in Fargo.
This wasn't your typical postcard message.
"Go to college someday and become a good football player someday," Mulholland wrote. "That is my wish and my goal someday in life. And I pray to God that I become that someday.
"Besides that, I hope to be a good clean football player and do what Dad wanted me to do. And help to become a better brother to my sisters and Mom."
On the back of the card was a picture of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.
Seven years later after becoming a standout athlete at Fargo Central High School, Mulholland made it as a starting halfback for the University of Minnesota Gophers football team that played in the 1961 and 1962 Rose Bowls. They were the last Gophers teams to reach the Rose Bowl.
Thursday night, the 58-year-old Mulholland died of heart failure. He died in his sleep at a friend's home in Illinois, on his way home to Des Moines, Iowa, from a business trip in Chicago.
"Of all the things that really stand out with Dave is that he was such a hard worker," said Tom Kennedy of Fargo, a longtime friend of Mulholland. "He wasn't going to let any son-of-gun at Minnesota beat him out. He played with such heart."
Mulholland and Kennedy played on football teams in junior high and high school that never lost agame. Kennedy was the quarterback who often handed off to Mulholland, his left halfback.
That string of victories included a 45-0 win over Fargo Shanley, coached by the legendary Sid Cichy.
"Sid Cichy would play the film of that game back to his players for many years just to remind them," Kennedy said. "I think Shanley started quite a string of victories over Central after that."
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Mulholland was a halfback and defensive back for the Gophers. In 1961, he helped lead the Gophers to the Rose Bowl and a national championship.
As a result, Mulholland was named the North Dakota Sportswriters Association's athlete of the year. He beat out such North Dakota legends as Roger Maris, who hit his record 61 homers that year and Steve Myhre, a kicker who helped the Baltimore Colts to an NFL championship that year.
"We found out later that only amateur athletes could win that award," Kennedy said. "But it was quite a year ... the 'M' year in North Dakota."
Mulholland is survived by his wife Pat, two sons (Bob of Chicago and Steve of Minneapolis) and two daughters (Mindy of Minneapolis and Tara Lynn of Iowa City).
Funeral arrangements were unknown as of press time Friday.

David was an outstanding athlete at Central High School in Fargo. He played football for the University of Minnesota and in 1961 helped lead them to a victory in the Rose Bowl and a national championship. He was named ND Athlete of the Year by the North Dakota Sports Writer's Association.
He was the owner of DKM Marketing of Des Moines. He was extremely proud of his family and their accomplishments. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Hazel Mulholland, and a brother, Dale.
He will be missed by many.

Minneapolis Star Tribune

Former 'U' football star Dave Mulholland
He helped lead Gophers to 1960 national title
By Allie Shah
Star Tribune Staff Writer

Former University of Minnesota football star David K. Mulholland, 58, whose hard running and quick hitting-style helped lead the Gophers to the 1960 National Championship and a Rose Bowl appearance, has died.
Services will be held today in central Iowa, where Mulholland has lived for the past 20 years. He grew up playing football in Fargo, N.D., where he had something of a premonition. At age 13, he scribbled a note to himself on the back of a postcard featuring the Rose Bowl. It said: I hope I am good enough to play in the Rose Bowl."
The card went into his scrapbook and he forgot about it - until 1960, that is, when his mother dug it out and showed it to him. Mulholland's Gophers went on to defeat Washington in the Rose Bowl.
Football always had a special place in his heart, his mother, Hazel, told the Minneapolis Tribune in 1960. His father, who loved sports and encouraged the boy to play football, died of a heart ailment when the budding halfback was 14.
Three months later, Mulholland's older brother, Dale, died of leukemia.
"Sports became very important to David after that," his mother said in the article.
At Fargo Central High School, Mulholland became a star. During the three years he was the regular halfback, the team won 26 straight games and went on to win the state championship. A scholarship brought him to the University of Minnesota.
At the university, "Mully" made a name for himself on defense as left halfback. He was a junior when the Gophers won the National Championship. The following year, North Dakota's sports writers association named him athlete of the year.,
Mulholland is survived by his wife, Pat of Des Moines; sons, Robert of Chicago and Stephen of Minneapolis; daughters, Malinda Greeley of Minneapolis and Tara Lynn Mulholland of Iowa City; sisters, Elaine Akin of Moorhead, Minn., Beatrice Kroke of Fargo, Karen Yohn of Hillsboro, Ore., Kathleen Mulholland of San Jose, Calif., and Susan Lake of Vacaville, Calif.
Memorials are suggested to Camp Heartland of Minneapolis, Children's Heartlink of Edina, or the Des Moines YMCA.
