I am so sorry for your loss. As you know, he was a wonderful teacher, mentor, advisor and friend to so many Ohio State students. I could not have asked for a better faculty advisor when I was a member of Ohio Staters, Inc. He change my life and career path, and it is because of him that I went onto law school and became an attorney. And, I know how much he loved you. I remember the Stater retreat/meeting at his house when he introduced you to us as his fiance and how happy he was. That is how I will always remember him -- as someone who brought out the best in students, who quietly listened to them before imparting pearls of wisdom that kept them on the right path, and who loved his life with you.

Dear Elsie,
I am so saddened to learn that Rich passed. He was a true mentor to me and to my good friend Dr. John Noftsinger (RIP). He was one of the most real, funny and caring people I have ever met. He cared about students more than 98% of those I worked with in the profession over 25 years. He helped me learn and grow. His life touched many. Many blessings to you.

For some reason I didn't know Rich, I graduated in March 1972 and was an active Stater to the end. Condolences to your family. He sounds like a giving and loving person who embodied the Ohio Staters ethic.

Dear Elsie: My deepest sympathy for your loss of Richard. He was spectacular in so many ways. So kind and generous. He was like a brother to me when I was growing up. My dad mentored him, and he mentored me. He was so creative, engaged and intelligent. The world is a better place because of him and I am a better person. I think of him often. When we were young and life seemed it would go on forever, he asked that when he died, we all bring the stained glass windows he made us and display them. Those windows are now permanently installed in the walls of my home. I wish I could tear them out and bring them. Much love to you.
