Growing up in Boston, Dick graduated from Boston Latin, where he was active on the school newspaper, the Professional Club, and the rowing club, and won a Princeton alumni prize.
At Princeton Dick majored in psychology, belonged to Dial Lodge, and roomed with Mike Stieber and Christopher Harbach ’68 in 104 Blair. The University awarded him a major scholarship when his father became seriously ill, affecting family finances. Dick married his hometown girlfriend, Lorraine Garbett Goodkin, in 1966 and spent many weekends driving home to tend to family during our final two years. He still graduated with election to Phi Beta Kappa amid the family stress.
After graduation Dick went to Harvard Law School, graduating in 1970. He worked for Boston legal firms early in his career, but once gaining partnership decided to seek more stimulating and intellectually challenging legal activity. For more than 20 years he was consultant to many startup firms in New England, handling all sides of business operations and more complex issues of management, personnel, and corporate law. He also served on the boards of the Massachusetts arts council and a children’s charity operating after-school programs.
For recreation Dick was a longtime motorbike enthusiast, and he and Lorraine were devoted theater and concert attendees sometimes multiple times a week. After full-time retirement they began spending winter months in Newport Beach, Calif.
Dick is survived by Lorraine and his daughter, Renay, born the year of our class graduation, 1967.
