I was sorry to hear of Richard’s passing. I worked with him at Pressed Steel Tank. Our desks were right next to each other in the engineering department. We worked on many engineering projects together. I had to chuckle when I saw the “March Forth” in the death notice. Every March 4th he would mark that on a desk calendar. I remember his drawing of a brainstorm, a brain with a lightning bolt. Another one of his drawings was a “catenary”, a cat’s head with a canary’s body. There are many similarities in our lives. He was born on December 16, 1938 and I on December 5, 1938. He graduated from UW-Madison with an ME degree as I did. We both enjoyed woodworking and photography. I was a groomsman at his wedding and honored to be one. I left PST before he did and we went our separate ways. I never saw him again except for one day when I happened to see him twice in the same day. Once in a grocery store’s parking lot in New Berlin and again that evening at a seminar. Richard Ogren

Marched forth on the 4th of March... I see what you did there! And I'm sure Uncle Richie is looking down getting a good chuckle out of that! A man of few words, but many of them were witty! I'm certain he entered paradise hearing "Well done, good and faithful servant." Enjoy eternal rest in the joy of the Lord, it is well earned. All my love to the rest of the family. I know he's going to be missed and I hope a lifetime of memories bring some joy during these difficult days.
