DS1 Richard Beckman (False alarm)

Postby ds2don on Thu Jan 12, 2012 12:16 pm

I just yesterday learned that Rich passed on back in 2003 at the age of 49.
Greg Kaiser found a notice while doing some research for a High School reunion.
While he was there he decided to include Rich in his search. We have been unable to
find out any further information and if we do we will pass it along.

Belay my last.

Even though Greg Kaiser got the information from two reputable sites (all indications led him to believe he had the correct Richard M. Beckman) it turns
out the Rich is very much alive and well. Rich called him to ask WTF? LOL

Sorry about passing along the wrong information.

It gets better Rich and his wife are back living in Puyallup Washington which is about 10 miles from me.
I'm waiting for Greg to send me his phone number.

Tell him he needs to check in.

This is a great recruitment tool for the site.
Just declare everyone dead and see who shows up to complain. :twisted:
