John H. Rich Jr.

I'm 25 years younger than John and always admired him as I pursued my own career as a foreign correspondent. He was one of the greats and did much for our beloved Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan. May he and his beloved life partner rest in peace.

Dear Ones.....

Greetings to each of you from Hilo, Hawaii and condolences, but congratulations on being so lucky as to have had John and Dee Lee as your parents. In their last years in Tokyo I was among her few friends that were willing to drive with your Mother as she was the personification of "Mr. Magoo." However I loved her so and enjoyed her always off beat sense of humor about life and people and John could always be counted on if one needed anything. What a man! I haven't spent much time in Tokyo these past four years, but when next there I will try to contact you and have a gab fest about a few of the experiences I had with your family. Till then I send much Love and Aloha, Pat Salmon

Dear John, Jo and Family - We just returned home from Florida and learned of your Dad's passing from friends we had dinner with tonight. We are so sorry for your loss of both parents in such a short time. Please take comfort in knowing that they are together again. Xoxo

So sorry to hear about your Mom and Dad. Some of my fondest memories were of your Dad telling of his adventures. I always hoped he would write a book. I guess he was too busy enjoying life. He was kind enough to write to me, a teenage girl, from assignment overseas. I will always remember him with his blue eyes and matching cashmere blue sweater, after dinner with my Mom (Ruth Gray Wagner) telling his stories. He once gave me some earrings from Japan which I hardly wore I was so afraid I would lose one.
The last time I saw he and DLee was a foggy, rainy day at Hannaford Cove surrounded by his many collections from his travels. At that time he was 82 and was still ocean kayaking.

He was a special person who truly gave much to the world.
My condolences to you all.

To John, Joanne and Family,
Although we only had brief time with your wonderful parents, it was a true pleasure and honor to know them. Reading both of your tributes to them reminds us that they lived full and exciting lives, the kind all of us should strive for. Please accept our condolances and know we are thinking of you all. Rob, Chad & Hannah at the Glenn Group
