Our uncle, Richard, passed away this afternoon, about 3 months after his wife of 47 years, Barbara, died. A decorated World War II vet (China-Burma-India theater), artist, conservationist, and crafts teacher for the State of Wisconsin, Uncle Rich was a creative, warm, generous, funny and fun-loving man whom we loved all our lives. He's almost the last relative we have left in the generation of our parents. He will always be remembered and missed.
