    My wife Anita and I were very sorry to hear of Dick’s passing. I taught with Dick at KLO School for several years and knew him to be a perfect gentleman and a genuine life-long learner. He was passionate and enthusiastic about “everything” and was always kind to students and staff alike. A terrible loss for all of us.

    My sincere condolences. Dick or Richard as I used to call him went I first met him at Potters Addict, then many later at The Center for spiritual living as I sand in the choir which was lead by him. He was a very gentle, open and interesting man and always encouraging others to do well. I will miss him.

  • irene Lalonde says:

    I felt deep feelings of loss when I heard of Dick’s transition. I remember talking to Dick about what to say to a person that was getting ready to leave this plane and he said,”simply be present and that person will feel your energy and know that they are loved and not alone. Dick had answers for everything, answers that were insightful and brilliant. He was an inspiration to me and the song”Practicing the Presence” we sang in the choir has been gently flowing through my mind since his passing. Dick, you are truly missed butyou will never be forgotten.

  • Austin Raham says:

    My sons and I were very sorry to hear that Dick has gone. He was an important part of educating both my boys when they attended OKM. His talent in music and thoughtful and supportive ways with pupils is something we often speak of. His impact on our lives will not soon be forgotten.
    Mark, John, and Austin
