RIP: Dick Wharton

Filed under: Sad,Salute! — Lex @ 9:24 pm

Dick Wharton had been serving his community, his country, his church and his profession for decades before I ever met him. We met in the mid-1990s while serving together on a patient-care team for the Guilford Regional AIDS Interfaith Network. He was smart, wise (and understood the distinction), funny, compassionate, ethical and a model of Christ’s love in the world. Like me, he loved good writing of all kinds, and he was himself a pointed, pithy writer. His death is a huge loss for Greensboro, but that loss is leavened by his record of service and accomplishment and the fond memories with which he leaves us.

My sympathies to Peggy, Emily, Scott and their relatives. Thanks to all of you for sharing Dick with us.
