He was truly one of a kind and as dedicated to his family and friends as anyone I have ever known. He shared laughter and positive energy with everyone he met while expressing his great wit and curiosity for life.
Don will be remembered for his many great talents; not the least of which was his truly genuine hug. Gentle, jovial, articulate and loving, Don had a huge heart. It will continue to beat in our memories...
In an effort to preserve Don Rieck's Memory, as well as offer an "everyday place" where his wife, children, and friends can visit him, we are raising money to dedicate a memorial tree on the campus of Episcopal Academy.
The funds will be used to reserve a spot on EA's campus near where his children will regularly travel, create a memorial plaque with his name, and to hold a small memorial service in the Spring or early summer.
As a close personal friend of Don's family I will coordinate the funds and ensure that the logistics are managed appropriately through the school.
Many thanks for your participation, generosity, and continued support in preserving the memory of such a wonderful person.
