    I first met Rhys 30 some years ago shortly after I met my wife Sue. As the husband of Sue’s best friend, meeting him was a top priority I really hoped we would hit it off. No problem there, we quickly realized we had many common interests and I knew...  more

    Rhys - if things had gone differently, you would have woken up in your RV today near Boston. I was so excited for you to meet Brent since he had only met Peggy so far. We would have gone for a walk along the historic Minute Man trail between Lexington...  more

    Rhys was the first person I met when I took the job at Durham HS. I remember him coming out to my U Haul in the school parking lot with his big welcoming smile. He welcomed my son to his 6th grade class and introduced him to Ben and they became...  more

    I met Mr. Severe on my first day of 6th grade at Durham Intermediate School (I think it was 1994). He was one of my favorite teachers of all my school years and I loved being in his class. He was a great teacher and a blessing to all his students. Years...  more

    My most vivid memory of Rhys is being on the sidelines while coaching with him. Something would happen in the game, and he would walk by muttering a comment under his breath - often R rated - walk a few more paces, turn and look at me with a serious look...  more

    I think I was 1976 when I met Rhys in Chico. Here was this boyfriend of Peggy’s that she’d talked about. He played baseball, had bowled in a league, and was in the Marines! All pretty glamorous stuff at that time.

    Little did any of us know, how...  more
