Dick Beard was truly an exceptional man. He excelled at being a father, a husband, neighbor, friend, counselor, musician and more. I can't begin to describe the kindness of both Dick and Carol over the years. When my own father died, Dick stepped in. His service to the community and individuals in need was remarkable. The world has lost a great man, but I'm sure he will be smiling down on us all from his place in Heaven.

Dear Carol, Forest and Lincoln,

We were so sad to see in the "Globe" today that your dear husband and Dad has passed away. It was Dick's musical talent that brought us together in the early years of the NSO. We enjoyed so many evenings of music together and enjoyed so much the time Carol, Dick and we spent catching up on our families, and all. We are so sorry for your great loss and look forward to celebrating Dick's life with you on the 15th.

Love,
Jeanne and Leo Stolbach

Carol,
My thoughts and condolences are with you and Forrest and Lincoln. I have wonderful memories of my times with you and Dick during many Special Olympic events. I was always so impressed with your kindness, generosity, and energy.
Peace be with you. Amy

Always generous with his time, talent, and treasure. Dick and Carol never hesitated to reach out personally to families of newly diagnosed individuals with developmental disabilities. He will be missed.
