Dad, missed so dearly,
Endeavoring to portray
Lessons embraced sincerely,
Remember heartache away.

Practice tolerance and reason.
Be generous, stand ground.
Defend good and just with honor,
Proudly, courage found.

Read, listen, ask, prove,
Understand, discern.
Open-minded seeking Truth,
Prospect knowledge. Learn.

Challenge yourself in contest.
Hone body, mind and way.
Win. Don't lose. Try your best.
Be a good sport. Play.

Sweat-mixed sawdust grit,
Carve wood, lay stone, paint.
Envision beauty, aspire to art,
Make your mark. Create.

Treasure family and loved ones.
Share hugs and stories round.
Build fires, collect, inspire
History passed down.

Chase storms looking for rainbows.
Revel in a shooting star.
Stalk wood's dappled shadows.
Fish hidden reservoirs.

Wrap grief in memory's blanket.
Coached upright bearing.
Never give up on a sunset.
Light lost, love unerring.

Dear Ree and Family;

It was with great sympathy for you that we read of Jack's recent passing. Karen and I speak of you often remembering the wonderful times we had. I think Charleston was Karen's favorite. As I'm sure you know Jack was much more to me then a great boss and mentor, he was a dear friend who taught me many life lessons. I am still working in banking and have had a very successful 44 year career. My success is due in no small part to Jack. Every time I coach someone in how to close a sale I'm passing on the skill I learned from Jack. I can still quote him and here his voice.

I know when last we spoke he was not well, I hope he was able to enjoy these years with his family. I read that you have 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild, would you believe we have 3 grandchildren.

I hope this finds you well, Karen and I wish you and your family all the best.

Jack was a neighbor and classmate, an all-around great guy and superb athlete. He had a clever sense of humor and was the source of much merriment in our S. Livingston Avenue neighborhood, with us Richardson boys, Bill Stevens and Bill Dilzell playing pick-up football on the field next to Dr. Richardson's red farmhouse at #304, now a church property.
Jack went on to star at Grover Cleveland High School in Caldwell, where we were loyal fans. Jack made our reunion of Central Junior High School class of 1944 in 2009, but was too ill to join us this past June. Our condolences go to wife Marie, who sat in front of me in homeroom and occasionally got ink in her hair. No ballpoints in those days of the last millennium.
