Dick was a great teacher at the University of Tennessee, inspiring us to not be satisfied with just an OK performance but to be the best. Truly a person who always had class and strove for excellence in every pursuit.

I am so glad I had a chance to visit with Mr. Joel this past year for a couple of times and many phone conversations in between. It was great to see him after 50 years. He was a great professor . . . and more recently a good friend.

Richard Joel was my favorite professor at FSU. He made it possible for me to get a part time job in the Advertising Department at the Tallahassee Democrat. I graduated in 56 and had a successful career in Advertising. My deepest sympathy.
