here if that celebration of life choral piece doesn't come to mind. I know Dick would have loved this.
I'm sure there were also the hosts of others whose lives he touched as a beloved math teacher extraordinaire, a caring but perfectionish football coach who focused on his players first, and an all-around wonderful person with whom to spend what was always quality time.
How have I loved this lifelong friend? Let me count the ways.
- 1961, fresh out of college and smack, dab in the middle of my first year of teaching and I am lucky enough to be chose for Summer Institute on Computing at the College of St. Thomas. Fearful I was about the esoteric math, but the instructor was Dick. 'Nuff said. He always knew a way to make it clear, and possessed the patience to help those of us who needed more "clear."
