Richard Thomas STEVENS Obituary
Age 71 Of Saint Paul Died peacefully at his home on Sunday, April 28, 2013. He is survived by his wife Meredith Montgomery, sons Gregory and David, grandson Cole, and brother James Stevens. Dick graduated from the University of Minnesota -Twin Cities in 1964 with a BA in English Literature. His distinguished career in radio broadcasting, recording, audio and video production, and interactive media began at the student-run Radio K in Minneapolis. He subsequently produced programs for the Lutheran Church of America in Philadelphia and then held management positions at CBS Records in New York, EMC Corporation, Digital Excellence, Inc., and The ADS Group in Minnesota. Most recently he was elected a board member and became chair of the marketing committee at KFAI / Fresh Air Radio in the Twin Cities. Equally skilled and adept at running a business or handling the controls as an audio engineer and producer, Dick produced many internationally recognized media products for educational publishers throughout the U.S. and Europe. He was an avid collector of vintage synthesizers, which he used to create original musical compositions in his home recording studio. He was also a gifted painter, a voracious reader, and a discerning listener who appreciated music and was deeply interested in the properties of sound. His notable work ethic, enthusiasm, and inspiring qualities will be greatly missed by those he touched both professionally and personally. A memorial service will be held at 2 pm on Friday, May 31st at O'Halloran & Murphy Funeral Home (575 S. Snelling Ave., St Paul, MN). Memorials preferred to KFAI Radio (1808 Riverside Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55454). 651/698-0796
