Although our lab has since moved from Hershey, we fondly remember Dr. Courtney and were so sad to hear he had passed away. He was a great scientist and teacher and will be greatly missed.

Please accept my deepest condolences. Dick was a mentor and a dear friend. We shared many a laugh and enjoyed meeting challenges as co-leaders of the Academic Team years ago. Dick was a role model as an educator. He set the bar for departmental leadership being involved in undergraduate education; I was so impressed that he sat in on every Micro lecture. Now all course directors follow that practice. He wore the heavy cloak of leadership with grace. I never saw him with anything other than a smile on his face, and his demeanor was unfailingly gentlemanly. God's grace, Dick, we will miss you.

I remember the good times from High School and give thanks that the school was small enough that everyone was friends, where everyone knew each other. Since everyone went separate ways after High School, it was great to be able to attend the class get together's and get caught up on each other's lives and play a little golf. God be with his family and friends while they gather around to celebrate his life.

It was a sad day when I received word of
Richard Courtney passing on 11 April 2018. I went to the same school, played on the same play ground, and had the same teachers as Richard. When with Richard I never had to watch my back, and with his reassuring smile, he always was a friend, and gave me the feeling he was one I could consider a friend, and a gentleman. After public school regrettable our paths never crossed again, Richard`s path in health care, and my path in the Military, in Aviation, and Industrial Manufacturing. As time marched on in trying to emulate some of Richard`s qualities, I`m sure helped me through my career in working with others. I`M sure Richard helped others in ways he was unaware of by just being Richard. I`m sure Richard family should be recognized for being there, and guiding Richard in his early formative years.
