Dr. Belcher, thinking about you today and fondly remembering the exceptional doctor and human being you were. Twenty six years ago in about twelve hours you performed one of your many miracles. Thank you.

Lieber Dick, so haben wir Dich in Heidelberg damals genannt - 1967. Eben, im Gespräch mit meiner Tochter über alte Freunde in Heidelberg, warst Du ganz lebendig in meiner Erinnerung. Im Internet haben wir Dich gesucht und auch gefunden - Du, lieber Dick, lebst nicht mehr, zu meiner Traurigkeit. Wie schnell kann das Leben sein.

Dear Karen and Simone, no one told us Richard passed, and as his neighbor (to the right), we loved having him next door as he looked out for my family and home. What a great guy! I miss him daily as I leave and return, and my wife Linda and talk of him often. God speed my friend! Stephen & Linda Eason & Family

God Bless You Richard. Richard was a dear friend of mine in Germany. I was in the US Army stationed just south of Heidelberg. Many weekends we spent together especially in the Cave - a Jazz club with him playing the flute and I the piano. Unfortunately our paths did not cross later in the USA. My condolences to his family.

Our deepest sympathy to the family. We last spoke to Richard in August, 2011 regarding the birthday celebration for our friend Emmett Walker. We regret he was unable to attend. We always marveled at his ability to master the German language in order to earn his medical degree at the University of Heidelberg. He will be sorely missed as an Uncrowned King of Buffalo, New York.
Warm regards,

To the entire Belcher Family: I was so saddened to learn of Dr. Belcher's passing. He was a kind and fair man and a great physician. I will forever remember his interesting life stories and the way he used to make us laugh at the office; he should have been a stand-up comedian!

I truly loved every opportunity to spend time listening to Richard's stories of life. He loved his beautiful daughter, his handsome grandson, and his wonderful son-in-law. I am saddened by the loss of such a wonderful man, but honored to have known someone with such a zest life. His life could serve as a guide to all, at birth. Find your passion, pursue it, then make your transition with courage and grace. His spirit will definitely live on in all who were privileged to share in his life. Chiquita Hicks Ellis

In life there are very few people who leave lasting, positive, inspiring impressions. I am honored to have met Richard, as a part of my extended family. He shared his love for his daughter, Simone and grandson, Mason. He also shared his love and respect of his son-in-law, John.

I believe that Richard's life could be a guide for all, from birth to death. Richard lived with zest and vitality, while being a loving father to his beautiful daughter. I loved listening to his stories about raising Simone. Then, for as long as his health allowed, he was always present and involved in Mason's activities and events.

Again, what a great life! A person who lived life to the fullest, with love, courage and great dignity!
December 25, 2011
So sorry to hear that your father passed away. I enjoyed meeting him at Mason's parties. I know that you have many great memories. With Love,
