"Coach" taught me what it meant to strive for something excellent as a team member, and as an individual. Under his leadership, I experienced what it was like to have an "undefeated" season, as well as a season where wins were hard to come by; through it all, I learned to play with sportsmanship, and class - may God bless the family;

I just learned of Dick's passing...and I send my prayers and blessings to all of you. You and Dick were an important part of my life when we were together at MVCDS. Dick was an amazing teacher and coach and loved by all here.

Bette and boys,

So sorry to hear about Dick. He was a great teacher revered by so many students. We in the football program greatly appreciated his contributions to the program. The Country Day family has lost a manwho epitomized what the school meant to so many. I am sorry i am in florida and wont be able to attend the service. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sincerely, bill werremeyer

Dear Nuzum Family,
Remembering Dick's life brings a smile. How blessed we are to have known a man who defined good teaching, sensitivity, and caring. His words of encouragement in and out of the classroom will live on in the hearts that were touched by him.
Blessings and peace, dear friends.

I am very sorry to hear of OUR loss. Coach was a great person. He was inspirational to all who were lucky enough to get to spend time with him. One of my fondest memories of MVCDS was my trips with him to the barbershop on game day to get his buzz cut cleaned up. He would sit in one chair while I sat in the next and we went over our defensive game plane per situation. He gave me respect and confidence and I am very proud to have had him as my coach. He inspired me to go into education and coaching. I wanted to be like him in that I wanted my kids to excel because they loved me as I had loved him as a coach. MVCDS 1970

Mr. Nuzum inspires me to be the kind of educator that is dedicated not only to teaching but also the intangibles. His continued attention to and celebration of students was not duplicated by any teacher I ever encountered.

My son and daughter both had Mr. Nuzum for science at MICDS Joe was class of 98 and Katherine class of 07. Joe says he became a science teacher due to his teaching. Great teachers are so special!
