    We were students of Dr. Hamilton (1976-1981). He recommended me for a postion as graduate assistant to the advising office where I met my husband. Dr. Hamilton was a creative and intelligent teacher. He was well versed in the various aspects of business administration…far beyond marketing. He took the time to give us class and career advisement. He had an unfailing sense of concern, kindness and humor. I wish more MBA programs could have a professor like him. He will be greatly missed by our family.

    Hello: My name is also “Rich” and I visit a friend in Garden Terrace named Bill Jones. I have been visiting Bill for 3 years or more. “Rich” was a roommate of Bill for short period. I visit every Tuesday morning at breakfast. I always tried to say hello to “Rich” He usually returned my greeting with hi and his great big smile. It was wonderful to read about the contributions that “Rich” gave back to our society. I am so sorry that Alzheimer’s, took his memory and health!
    My condolences to Ruth Ann and Nancy.

    I am so saddened by Rich’s illness and passing. I’ve known him since he came to KC and UMKC in 1971…I worked for and with him and considered him a good friend. He took pride in his work in Washington DC during the oil crisis, and loved his corvette and Steelers! He worked hard to establish UMKC as a Center for Direct Marketing. He was a great friend. Condolences to Ruth Ann and his sister.
