Rich played football and was very stout despite his height. He had a deceptively deep voice. He and I got along great. He will be missed.

Reinhard lived just down the hill from me in PH. We hung out together for a time after my service hitch. He was a good guy & a fine friend. I'm sorry we drifted away from each other when I moved to Sonoma County....

Does anyone know what happened to Richard? it really tugs at the heart strings to read the in memory stuff. Sixty eight years is still too young to die!
