Richard was truly an all around one of a kind person. He always had to be cutting edge with everything he did. In 2000/2001 he was the first in Chicago to enable his medical laboratory client Doctors 24/7 immediate access to their patients results. He didn't just want technology but only cutting edge technology. Thank goodness I am the same way and understood this need as his Fisher Scientific Account Manager. His playlists in the office were not the typical boring, easy listening, or elevator music. They were all Richard. He lived life to it's fullest and as close to the edge as he could get away with. My husband and I met through one of his yearly, always rememberable, Christmas parties. We always had an incredible time going to dinner, concerts, and every New Years celebration was spent with Richard and Kelly.
When meeting Richard you would not have known how incredibly intelligent he was until you really got to talk with him or he told you he was a member of MENSA. He was always thinking of others and their well-being, a very empathetic, humble person.
It's been years since I've been in touch with Richard and Kelly, but it feels like no time has passed, and I am deeply saddened to hear he was taken so early.
A testament to enjoy every minute we have before being called back to the Lord.
God bless his soul and his family
