Richard, along with Pamela Champe, took a chance and included me in their writing team for LIR Biochemistry, a collaboration that lasted through the last five editions of the book.
Richard was the consummate professional and I learned much from him about biochemistry, writing, and editing. I am so grateful to have known and worked with him. My sincerest condolences to his family.

Richard was my cousin and my friend. I enjoyed the time I spend with him very much. He was always very kind and generous to me. We lost track of each other over the years, but two years ago, he contacted and visited my brother, Gene Pack, and Gene told him how to contact me. Richard and I exchanged e-mails, photographs and other things important to our families. I am grateful for this renewed, although limited contact. I send my sincerest condolences to Marilyn, other family members and all who mourn for Richard. May they be comforted in their lost, and may Richard rest in peace.

One of the most rewarding and exciting aspects of my career is having worked with Richard on the microbiology volume in the Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews textbook series. He was utterly brilliant and a true visionary. With all that he achieved he was always modest and always set an example of gentleness for all of us to follow. Literally millions of lives are better because of Richard's work as a scholar, educator, and author. My sincere hope is that Marilyn and his children will be comforted by knowing how much he meant to so many people. --Bruce D. Fisher, MD

I have worked with Richard for many years on medical publication and presentation projects. I am extremely sad about the news of Richard's passing. Yet still what he has accomplished and has done for others will live on for many years. His life and giving to others is quite inspiring and encouraging. Thank You Richard. - Michael Cooper
