So sad to hear this. Mr. Gutting is an icon of my childhood as my PE teacher at Sabal Palm Elementary. The 914 perfectly parallel parked next to the fence. Scaling said fence. His genuine heartfelt enthusiasm was contagious. He was demanding but fair. I had great respect for him. I pretended that I hated Square Dancing on Wednesday, but it really wasn't so bad... R.I.P. kind sir.

What a man!! He introduced me to Porsches! And taught me how to drive a stick shift!, oh so many years ago! I'm sorry I didn't stay in touch, but he was more of a friend/coworker/car lover to my dad than to me. My dad had Jacguars, and there was always a running joke between the two of them!

Dick! We all called him Dick but he was more then a name. All that knew Dick realized he was a special human being.

He climbed so many mountains in his life: trampoline (2 time national champion); professional diving (swimming and diving hall of fame); education (M.A. & 'Teacher of the year); music (master trumpeteer) but most valued by him family, teammates & friends.

Dick your contributions go on and on and on! We will miss you but you left so much for so many. Thank you Dick!

Dear David and Family,
My deepest sympathies on the loss of "Mr. Gutting". Great coach at Sabal Palm and a great teacher at NMB! I remember telling you once how lucky you were to have such a cool dad. Truly an inspiration to so many of us. Always a smile on his face and a word of encouragement. Loved watching him hop the fence every morning at Sabal Palm. Truly the efforts of a man who loved going to work everyday and making a difference to so many young lives. May your memories fill your hearts with joy.
Sincerely, Kim Matanis

What a joy and privilege to know Dick Gutting! On behalf of the late Neill and Tom Miller and their respective families, our hearts are with you Suzi, David, and Kevin, and also with your families. Dick's friendship for Tommy, especially after Neill died, was a beautiful gift to our family. Thank you for sharing such a great man with us! It's lovely to read the remembrances of Dick's students. May Dick Gutting's wise and wonderful legacy live on in all our hearts. We humbly join you in celebrating a life extraordinarily well-lived.

Mr. Gutting's personality always seemed to be bigger than the hallways of North Miami Beach Sr. High. Everyone knew him as he pushed his projector down the hallway. His class was exciting and inspiring and I began my interest in art in his Humanities class.
