Dear Marcus family, I met Richard at the training program at ScotiaMcLeod, in Toronto many years ago. We studied together, although it became very apparent that he didn't need to study! I realized then how smart he was. We stayed in touch throughout our respective careers; more recently we would run into each other on Greene Ave., and have nice conversations. My condolences to your family.

Claire Desjardins & David Glickman - 28 days ago

To the Marcus family, Richard was a former schoolmate at St. Georges, and both David and I remember him fondly. I (Claire) had the pleasure of being his neighbour in Westmount, too, for a few years. During that time, I got to know him, as we went for walks on the mountain, and enjoyed regular lunches out together. He kept me laughing with his subtle yet pointed sense of humour. Only very smart, sensitive people can be funny the way that Richard could be! I knew him to be a kind-hearted, generous person. I am so sad to learn that he is gone, and find it difficult to digest. We will be unable to make the funeral, unfortunately, but we send you all lots of love. Warm regards, Claire & David.

Joanne Garfinkle - 29 days ago

Dear Marcus family, Richard and I attended St George’s together. I will always remember how talented he was ! He played the organ and realized his dream by playing at the forum for a hockey game. His math scores were always above average without ever studying. His sense of style and humour was always a cut above the rest I recently had the opportunity of hearing Richard speak at Dan Wisebord’s wedding. As his best man, he was eloquent and humorous ( true to form ) I unfortunately can not attend the funeral but my prayers and thoughts are with you. I also want to wish Lisa a speedy recovery. I miss you Richard

Cheryl Sokoloff - 29 days ago

I want to extend my condolences to the entire family. I remember Richard from our days at Talmud Torah. I always considered him a friend. I know it is a long time ago, but I treasure those days and memories. The expos were playing at Jarry Park, and I vaguely remember Richard offering to take me, though we never did go. Like I said, it was a long time ago. I am so sorry for your loss. May you all be spared any further sorrow.BDE
