I have fond memories of Richard.  It seems like such a short time ago that Sheral Smith and I ran into him at the Bamboo Club.  I was so sorry to hear about his loss.

I too am very sorry to see this. I remember him as a classmate, and especially for his selfless action in saving me from drowning on a river trip. Rest in peace, Richard.

I went to St. Thomas with Richard for 7 years, he was so sweet, didn't get to know him much, when I came back to Camelback, know he was a very close friend to Greg Hintze
(St. Thomas/Brophy)

Rest in peace and love, Richard.
