John H. Rich Jr.

Saturday, April 12, 2014
The memory of John Rich calls to mind a poem, "Then out spake brave Horatius, The Captain of the Gate: To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late. And how can man die better, than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his gods". - Thomas Babington Macaulay, "Lays of Ancient Rome". Mr. Rich was an extraordinary man who lived through extraordinary times. His example and character live through his children, Whitney and Nate, through whom I feel privileged to have known him. - Patrick Bonney

Bob Howe here, friends of Whitney. Sitting in Honolulu, remembering the few conversations I had with John and enjoying the history in his obituary and in the wonderful photos. An amazing life. Condolences of course to the family, but I hope in fact it is a great excuse for you all to gather, hard to do with the centrifugal forces in all our lives, to love each other and salute the man who made all of you possible and the thread that connects the friends who will gather in his honor.
