I have known Richard since we both started working as mediators at the Financial Services Commission in 1995. He was an intelligent, thoughtful man with a wicked sense of humour. I am shocked and saddened by his untimely passing. He will be greatly missed.

Richard was a wonderful human being with an infectious positive attitude, wit and laughter. I have many wonderful memories of social gatherings, trips and all around good times. I will miss you Richard. And my thoughts are with Richard's friends and family and his life partner Michelle. It is an untimely, tragic loss and I send you my sincere condolences.
