Other than my father and my husband, Archie was the most important and most influential man in my life. To say he was brilliant would be an understatement. He knew more about education, how to run a school and how to set standards than anyone on the face of the earth. He motivated, he inspired, he challenged, he taught, he coached, he mentored and he made everyone who worked for him stretch to achieve things that they would never have achieved otherwise. Because of him, I achieved things that I never would never have thought imaginable.

I loved him like a second father. He was a wonderful man with a big heart. I will miss him.

My condolences to his family. You were lucky to have him in your lives for such a long time.
