I haven't posted here very often over the years that I have been here, but I have always enjoyed Rich's posts of his beloved OKW. It is mine also. Each time I go to OKW I always think of some of his posts and think about how right he was about it. You and your family will be in my prayers.

I've only just read this news on the community board. I'm so very sorry to hear about Rich's death. I remember him well from the debate board - strangely we agreed 100% on religious topics .................and DISagreed 100% on politics. Still you could always rely on Rich for a totally honest opinion on anything!

Sending you and your daughter my sincerest condolences at this VERY sad time.
ME! DH! DD! Ruby!

I was so saddened to hear the news about Rich. My husband just told me last night. He has been doing most of the postings here the last couple of years, but I remember when we joined DVC back in 1999 Rich was so helpful, and always entertaining. Our condolences on your loss, and our prayers for you and your daughter.

Lisa--I did not have the honor of knowing your husband within the DIS Boards (I am too new to them.) But I am very saddened to hear of this news....it is apparent he was well-loved by many, and that he will be greatly, greatly missed by all.

My condolences go out to you and your daughter, and I hope you find a small bit of comfort in knowing he made such a tremendous, smiling impact on people.

Warm regards,

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I, like many others, can credit Rich and a few others on the DVC board for helping me make the decision to buy....at OKW of course! And I think of him every time we stay at BWV and trek those long halls.

I'll be praying for you & your family!

Been away from the boards, but must say richyams has answered so many of my DIS questions. Can I ask -- was it a health problem, auto accident. How could someone his age be gone with the Lord? What happened? I hate to be so nosey?

sad news


I have been a lurker since 2000. I stumbled across DIS when I was planning our first ever disney vacation.

Then I came across DVC chat room and from reading Rich's posts regarding how wonderful it is for a family to purchase and vacation using points we bought a resale at OKW (of course).

It was from reading his posts that he actually answered some of my questions. I would bring my husband to the computer and say, "well, Richyams says this or that." And then show him his posts.

I also enjoyed reading his comments on the debate board. I agreed with him on politics but not on religion. I remember him talking about homeschooling and how inadequate public school is.

What a man, what a legend...what a way with life!

God bless you and your living piece of him (your daughter).

I just heard about this and wished to pass on my condolences. I can't remember one single time on the debate board when I agreed with Rich, or when he agreed with me. But I can honestly say that I liked him, (as much as you can like anyone you've never met) and he nearly always made me laugh, even if it was sometimes with disbelief at some of the views he expressed. I'll miss him.

So sorry

You are in my thoughts. I have not been a DVC member for very long, and as a result not been on the forum for long as well. Rich was one of my favorites. I usually agreed with him, but even when I didn't I appreciated how forthright and honest he was. He surely will be missed. If there is anything we can do, don't hesitate to let it be known.
