Rides died Sept. 4, 1995, of a cerebral aneurysm in Ft. Myers, Fla.
Rides prepped at North Shore Country Day School in Winnetka, Ill. At Princeton, he was a voice on WPRU, specializing in classical jazz. He majored in psychology, graduating cum laude, played golf as often as possible, usually with Gerry Goring '59, and was a member of Campus Club.
After graduation, he enlisted in the Army and was attached to a psychological research unit. He was stationed at Ft. Bliss, Tex., where he met and married Sara, his first wife and mother of his three children. Upon leaving the Army, he was commissioned a second lieutenant.
He and Sara went to Hawaii, where he was manager of several different branches of the Bank of Hawaii over a period of seven years. He was recruited by the Continental Illinois Bank. Four years later, he joined the Natl. Bank of Detroit (NBD), which was expanding into the northern Illinois area. With NBD he served successively as chairman of the board of the Bank of Elk Grove, the Woodfield Bank, and at the time of his death, was senior officer responsible for 12 banks under the NBD umbrella.
Rides will be profoundly missed by his many friends. To his children, Ron, Rick, Cyndi, and his wife, Eva, the class extends its heartfelt sympathy.
