Richard Croy's Nickname

 Sister, Mary Lou, told this story recently, how our
 brother Richard received his nickname "Bing". 
 Early in his gradeschool career, he was asked to
 sing for the class. It soon became apparent that
 he did not sing well in his early life. He quickly
 was given the nickname of Bing by classmates.
 They gave him the name of the very popular
 singer Bing Crosby. Later in life, many did not
 know his first name was not Bing. He was called
 Bing by many family members as well. He was
 Richard to us most times.
