Celebrating Dick Osborn, AIA

Dick Osborn, AIA a respected and dear colleague in AIA Redwood Empire chapter, passed away last weekend. Dick was the President of the AIARE in 1991, an avid designer, and a good steward in the community. He will be greatly missed.

The following is a write up from the Osborn Design Group website:

Dick Osborn September 22, 1937 to January 6, 2008

While snorkeling on vacation with his family at Poipu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii, Dick Osborn died of a heart attack. He will be missed by all of us who knew and loved him. We will miss his sincere kindness, dedication to the things he believed in, positive words, and wonderful sense of humor.
He lived a long and rich life and seemed to enjoy every minute of it. He died doing what he loved, in a place that was special to him, with the people he loved.

Dick grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. He got his MA in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. He loved architecture and was an accomplished pianist. He lived and worked as an architect in Berkeley, California, moving to San Francisco in 1982, and on to Santa Rosa, California in 1987.

There will be a Memorial Service for Dick in Santa Rosa, California on January 19, 2008. The time and place will be posted at when it is determined.
