Richard Rutyna was my history professor at ODU many years ago. I remember him fondly as an excellent instructor and a nice man. May he rest in peace.

I knew Professor Rutyna as a history instructor at Old Dominion College/University. He always reminded me of Clark Kent (Steve Reeves) with a sense of humor and great strength. As an undergraduate and first generation college student, I saw him as a figure who loomed over my struggles with learning to be a student. He always seemed amused at my attempts at scholarship betrayed only by a slightly crooked smile. He seemed a most laudable character who seemed strong and tall, handsome and scholarly, encouraging and kind. Among the faculty, he still seemed one of the most approachable and he set a great example as a historian and scholar. Rest in peace. Hoping there is comfort for all who share the loss of these two, though I did not know Dee.
