I learned of Mr. Richards' passing through an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer today (10/1/17) naming GIl as a Cincinnati Trailblazer.

I was a driver for Mr. RIchards at times and the education I got from from him each time was far more valuable than the actual wages I received. I was made to feel a member of the family whenever I had contact with Mr. Richards.

Favorite memory: I had to drive Gil and his family to Cleveland for a family function (christening?). On the return trip it took probably 8 hours to get back due to the weather. The family slept and Mr. Richards and I talked the whole way.Every time I saw Mr. Richards after that, he laughed about our adventure.

Every so often I would get a note or picture from him unexpectedly in the mail, and I would say to myself "You've got to call him!" I am so sorry that it is too late now.

To the Richards family, and the Richards Industry family, my deepest condolences. We have been blessed to know a great human being.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad always made me feel like part of the family. One of my dearest friends, his daughter Helen, introduced me years ago and I always thought of him as a 2nd Dad. He will be dearly missed but I am sure we will all meet again! Our loss but HEAVEN'S GAIN!
love prayers and hugs

I am very sorry to hear about his passing, I knew Gil for many years as pert of the control valve community and thru his ISA involvement He definitely will be missed . I remember when he invited the ISA 75 control valve committee, when we had a meeting in Cinn, to his house for drinks before going out to dinner.

Gil may you rest in peace.
