My husband and I meet Dick through Table of 6 at Christus. We had a wonderful time with him and instantly felt a connection to him. We continued to keep in contact with him through Christus. Dick was outgoing, funny, gentle, and always the first to lend a helping hand. He will be greatly missed by us and the whole church. Our sincerest sympathy and may God bless you.

All of us at Gerritt's Middle School where Dick was a substitute teacher were very fond of him. His gentle way with students, and light hearted spirit was always welcome! We have missed him. God bless you all.

To the family of Brother Richard Griesser,

May Peace be with you in this time of loss. A great Phi Psi, indeed, has passed to the Chapter Eternal, but his legacy will continue. Lives of men by the thousands have been impacted by his leadership at Wabash College and with Phi Kappa Psi, let alone the additional lives impacted through his service to our country and his community after undergrad. Without Brother Griesser, I wouldn't be the man or Brother I am today. I am thankful for the life he lived and the great example he set.

Amici,
Patrick D. Griffith...

I'm sorry to hear of his passing. I only got to know him over the past few years at Christus (I'm the secretary here), but he was always such a pleasant, kind man who always had a smile, as well as brought a smile to my face. He was always very dependable in volunteering and a faithful man. The entire staff here at Christus will miss him very much! God Bless you and grant you healing.

I am so sorry to hear about Richard's passing. I met him just a few years ago when he became a member of the Outagamie County Republican Party and was a faithful volunteer. It sounds like Richard had a very interesting life full of adventure and devoted concern for others. My condolences to the family.
