    I want to express my sincere condolences to Richard’s family upon his passing. I met him at what once was a doughnut shop across the street from Kodak’s building 153 where my dad, Walt Cawley, worked for 36 years. They were friends and used to have lunch there often. He was a good man with a great sense of humor! I’ll be starting my 42nd year at Kodak in September and he was instrumental in my being hired. Thanks Dick!
