Shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Richard's untimely passing. I first met Richard at CBC in 1977 when he interviewed me for "Summer Scene". Later I was his guest on several occasions on Dialogue, where he was always kind and gracious - always concerned that he might somehow embarrass or offend, which he never did, of course. Our last meeting was about five years ago when we chatted over coffee at a cafe on Water Street, and caught up on life and family. A true gentleman ... I will miss him. My heartfelt condolences to his wife and family.

Richard was a wonderful colleague at CBC and a life-long friend. We met at Radio UNB, the radio station of the University of NB in 1965. We spoke last just about a month ago. Heartfelt condolences to his wife, family, colleagues and friends.
