Richard was an avid outdoorsman with accomplishments in windsurfing, summiting Aconcagua with Alex Lowe, and ranking nationally as a cross-country skier, competing in many Birkebeiner ski races.

He will be remembered for his keen mind and dry sense of humor, his wise counsel, his deep principles and integrity, his sense of fairness and decency, but more so for his devotion to family and friends. He will be sorely missed.

The family requests that contributions in his memory be made to the Les Turner ALS Foundation, 5550 W. Touhy Ave., Suite 302, Skokie, IL 60077.
