My memories of Dick are pretty exclusively from growing up with him in the mid-60's and early 70's as "Audubon" kids in the school we attended.
Dick exuded an excitement about learning and knowing things. He was well-liked and well-respected as one of the "brains" of the lot, and always had a very upbeat disposition. If ever there was a difficult question presented, we often looked Dick's way for the answer, as the final authority... and if he didn't know it, we figured no one did.

His "shock white" or very blonde hair made him instantly recognizable in any gathering. He was kind and genuine.

It's gratifying to hear that Dick lived a full life on his own terms, and enjoyed the outdoors by being a conscientious caretaker of its wonders. I celebrate Dick's life, his zest for living and accomplishing all those ascents of the 14ers in Colorado. I am grateful I knew him for a small part of our shared experience growing up.

I am very sorry for your loss. I can imagine how heartbreaking it is to lose a loved one, but it's uplifting to know that God promises us in Isaiah 65:17 a near future in which not only will we not feel this horrid pain in our hearts when we lose a loved one but we won't even remember how it felt.

I did not know Dick "Giraffe" but felt compelled to offer my condolences after reading his amazing story. I wish I had known him and know he will be delighted in the hereafter as well as welcomed with open arms. What an amazing man he must have been.
