Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • I knew Richard for about 25 years and am sorry to hear of his sudden and unexpected passing. He was a friendly and lively intelligent debater with a good sense of humour. Spent many hours with him discussing or arguing about economics and world politics. A sad loss to the world. He will be missed. - Posted by: Peter Carlyle=Gordge (friend, former Manitoba broadcaster, writer and author) on: Jan 17, 2022
