To all of Rich McGuire's Family: Our heartfelt condolences to all of you at this time. We were high school classmates of Rich's and just got together with him last December to celebrate his birthday. It was a fun and happy get together. Bill is going to miss him as a golf partner in the St. Catherine's Class of '63 Golf Outing. Our Sympathies, Bill & Dorothy Bushell

Rich and my brother were fast friends, in their younger years. Rich was, in many ways, our other brother. Over the years, when I saw him, Rich would keep that feeling alive. Ever charming, friendly and fun. Our greatest condolence - The Belden family: Bill, Pat, Lyn, Jan

Craig and I send our condolences. Richard was one of the kindest men I knew. He was so much fun to golf with. I have fond memories of many a Sunday spent on the course at the Wisconsin Club with the McGuires. Sally and I would talk politics and Richard and Craig would patiently put up with us. Over the past few years Richard took a special interest in Craig’s golf game - encouraging him, giving him confidence to begin to golf with the guys at the Club, sharing more humorous emails than I could count. I am forever grateful for the kindness he showed both Craig and me. Sally, it won’t be the same yet I know we will have more fun times on the golf course. Richard would want it that way. Love to your family.

Sally, we're so very sorry. The world has lost a true gentleman. Add sweetheart to the list of adjectives. We'll miss his smile and golfing a fun round with him.

Richy was a good friend and golfing buddy. We could always depend on him to come up with something funny and totally unexpected. He enriched the lives of all he touched. I will miss his re-gripping and dancing routine before each golf shot. I hope if there is golf in heaven breaks par. Condolences to the McGuire family

Jim Becker left a message on April 15, 2020:
Squire, as he was known at CU and Phi Psi land, was always a classy guy with a great sense of humor. He was a senior when I was a freshman on the golf team and a Phi Psi pledge. We had recently connected with Hopper, Ols, Lantz, Moesch with CU stories and emails. Squire had just emailed "Golfing Goofs" on Friday and we all looked forward to the idea of getting together. I am so sorry for your and our loss. It was such a shock and doesn't make it easier. We have recommitted to get together and Squire will be a part of our fondest thoughts.
JOHN BURGESS left a message on April 15, 2020:
I grew up with Richie at Winslow Elementary school with Mr. Lahr as principle, whom Richie got to know fairly well. We had fun times growing up together both through school and the south side neighborhood .Even though those fun times usually meant T R O U B L E, but in a good way. Now those fun times have become remarkable memories that I will be able to share with his family. Love you Rich I'll miss you.
Colleen and Paul left a message on April 15, 2020:
What a perfect remembrance of our dear Rich. He was truly special. We loved him, and not just for his annual Kringle visit, his infectious laughter, his kind heart and abiding friendship over many years. We look forward to gathering with his extended clan, celebrating a life very well lived and adding some humorous stories to his legacy.
