    Mr. Foltz was my teacher during his short time at Stonewall Jackson High School. He was a young and enthusiastic teacher who was nice to all students and encouraged each and every one of us. I know he will be missed by all whose lives he touched.

  3. Ben Ireland says:

    Richard was a great friend of my father Frank and his partner Burt, and through them I grew very close to Richard growing up. I used to love visiting him and his two huge black cats at his apartment around the corner. He would often play a tune he had written on the piano for us and and was always just a pleasure to be around. Richard is by far just one of the sweetest and gentlest men I’ve ever known. I’m so sorry he is gone, and I’d like to express my sincere condolences to his family down south.
