Rich recruited me from California to MSU 24 years ago to be part of his VM Systems team. We then began exploring internet applications before most had heard of it. He was truly a visionary and a joy to work for. But first and foremost he was a wonderful person. I am saddened that he is gone, and will never forget him.

This was indeed sad and surprising news for mainframe computer systems programmers, many of whom knew and admired Rich. I met Rich at the mainframe conference "SHARE", and was so often the case with him, was warmly welcomed, becoming good SHARE-mates. When we were in Chicago I led a group to dinner at the Chicago Oven and Pizza Grinder Company. He liked it so much that he contacted me later (pre-Google) for the address so he could take his wife during a subsequent Chicago visit. My prayers go out to a great guy, and his many friends and his family who will miss him so dearly.

I am really sorry to hear this. Richard was my best friend in college. Though I didn't see him so much since moving to California I kept in touch till the last few years, and I hoped to get back in touch still.

I only knew Rich from facebook of all things, but we became quite friendly and he made real impression on me. I will miss him.

I am sorry for the loss; it is way too soon. Hopefully in time the best memories will be left and only the lessons from the difficult times. I did not know Rich well but he was a great teacher and a funny guy to listen to. My sympathies to everyone he touched.
