I send my deepest condolences as I recall many fond memories of Dick, in the 70's, when I knew him well.

Richard and I were Scrabble buddies for a few years. He was very smart. He always, always won. I am sad to hear he's gone. My condolences.

Dick Appleby was a graceful and brilliant person. He had an unusual wit. We spent time together in the early 70's enjoying each others families, laughing, playing tennis, and traveling. He will remain an important spirit for me always. Rest in peace.
