You will always be remembered for the fairness that you always provided equally, right down to your famous paddle. Will always remember the tennis tournaments and the trips out of town. Rest in Peace Coach. Sequoia, class of 1951

Dick accomplished so much, with Muriel by his side. As a retired teacher in the Redding School District, he listened to me, considered what I wanted, then acted as to what would/was in the best interest of both students and me. He was always correct. Because of his commitment to Redding, much has been accomplished over decades. A long, productive life, well lived. In admiration and appreciation. Thank you, Muriel for your part.

Dick Riis hired me in the late 70s for a teaching position. It lead to over 34 years teaching for the Redding School District. He was always very supportive and encouraging. Dick was a fine man and an excellent administrator. Few could match his dedication to public service and the youth of Shasta County. He will be missed.

Mr. Riis served as an interim superintendent in the district where I worked. He was very good at his craft. Mr. Riis sincerely cared about the families and staff, and the quality of education that was offered. He was a kind and caring man that I remember with respect and affection.
