You helped me drive a very big RV cross country with two huge dogs.  A great memory and lots of fun.  At 70 you were still running marathons, biking 100 miles and climbing mountains.  We played ping pong for hours and were evenly matched but CHESS you could have been a grand master. I will miss you and all of our correspondence.  RIP...cyn

I remember running a foot race against Dickie at Mt. Hebron. I was fast and was winning until near the end when he whizzed by me. He seemed like a very decent and quiet sort of fellow. My condolences to his family and friends.

To Richards family and friends. My sincere condolences to a fine friend.

We first met at Mt. Hebron and became quick friends. My best memories of "Dickie" were out in the playground at Mt. Hebron wrestling and doing antics with Dave Phillips and Leland Bonelli. 

I was impressed with Cynthia's rendition of her experiences with my old friend.

He will surely be missed but the memories will not be forgotten.

Your pal.................Tom Tupper

Did not know Richard well in school, but we had occasion to connect on this website in 2018 over our shared history at Upper Montclair Presby Church & Sunday School. He shared some really difficut childhood and mid-life issues. He had overcome alot and sounded so peaceful and happily content in his life since then in Canada. I was so sorry to hear of his passing.

"Dickie" was a friend at Mt. Hebron and always up for some fun. I remember his laugh and that he had a lot of practical "mad-skills." A good man to have with you in the forests/"deep woods" of Montclair :>). My best thoughts/prayers to his family and friends. Great memories Cyn, Tommy et al...thanks for sharing.

How very sad to learn of Richard's (Dickie's) untimely passing (too young). I, too, was with him through Mt. Hebron and knew him growing up. He was always smiling and such fun. It is incomprehensible that he ran marathons and took 100  mile bike rides so recently and then suddenly and shockingly he's gone. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends. He surely will be missed by many.
