I was thinking about Dick a few days ago and was saddened to see he had passed away in 2000. We first met at both of our first jobs out of college. I went up to him and introduced myself and he let me know I had a booger on my shirt. He was caring in that way and we quickly became good friends doing the kinds of things young guys do during a time when either us had few or no responsibilities. Dick introduced me to Rugby, a sport where I had lots of fun and met life long friends. I was with Dick when he met the love of his life, Pam, and became best man at their wedding (as an aside, Pam immediately made Dick more responsible and focused but giving me the honor of being best man was not one of his better decisions!). Dick moved away from Richmond and over the years we lost touch, something I greatly regret. My belated condolences to Pam, their children and grandchildren. Bob Brant

I am so sorry I am just hearing about the passing of your Husband and Dad. I worked with Richard over the phone and email at S&S and BB&T, I never met him personally but talked in great deal over the phone. He shared with me your trips to St Martin and told me where to go for fun, eat, and the beaches., As I recall Dawn beach was a fav.I also recall him mentioning a jeep rental. I will miss him as I am sure you will too! He was a great man and well respected in our Dept at in Richmond Va I sincerely mourn your loss!

I met Pam and Richard when they had been married just 2 years. We belonged to the Civitan Club and they lived just around the corner from my house. Richard was a character, intelligent, funny, sometimes outrageous, hard working, hard playing. I was fortunate to live close and to watch their family grow and to become Godmother to their youngest child (Sam). I will mill him and I know that his family and Winchester will not be the same without his contributions. Love to Pam, Ann, Nettie, John, Sam and all the spouses and grandchildren. ro

I was saddened to hear of the passing of my former classmate and friend Richard " Dicky" Debergh. We attended Warren County High School. Whenever we have a Class Reunion of 1971 , I always ask " has anyone know where Dicky is and what he is doing I remember him as an intelligent, knowledgeable and funny guy.. He was one of the first persons to befriend me , when our schools integrated. I remember Ricky and Ernie Stansfield on stage during an assembly and proclaiming their faith in Jesus Christ. There are other memories that I have of him. I am praying for the Family , that His Spirit will comfort you during this difficult time. Pastor Ronald M.Chunn

Dear Pam, John, Nettie, Ann and Sam: I am so sad to hear of your husband and father's passing. He was always kind and had a great sense of humor. I am thankful for all of the fun times we had at Apple Blossom and rugby, but also, the times we shared the same pew at church. I am so thankful to have seen him at the gym and also at home the time I came by. Glad he gave me a peck on the cheek. The virus has made it hard for me to go out and I am sorry that I could not visit more. To Pammy, I am so thankful we were able to have lunch that day. I have love in my heart for all of you. Sending you lots of hugs. XOXO

My name is Paul ODonohue, and I live on the other side of the world in Australia. The news of Richards passing has filled me with great sadness,.... but also with a flood of happy memories. I was Richards first Rugby Coach in Winchester Virginia.  Richard and a few notable other gentleman were at the first rugby meeting at the Old Mall Bagel shop in 2001. It was then and there that I first set eyes on this gentleman whom I thought by his age must be in the twilight of his rugby playing years (most players cease playing in their mid 30's or earlier). Following the formation of the club and the subsequent years training and playing games in the Northern Virginian and Potomac region, it became evident that Richard, and his contribution to the Club and Team, were Larger than Life !! Richard helped out the Club and Team at every level - setting up fields, organizing events, driving his teammates to training and games, and hosting memorable functions.   Then, at game time, he threw his ageing body into the fiery cauldron of the rugby scrum, and did whatever his Coach (myself) and Captain (Joe Barauskus) asked of him.  Whatever the Club and Team needed - Richard was there !!! As his Coach and Teammate, I could not ask him to deliver more than he did already. He was the ultimate Team Man !!  Indeed when it was time for me to leave America in 2003, it was Richard and Pam that hosted my farewell party. And it was there that I was choked with tears to be leaving my friends, my Teammates, my Brothers, of which Richard was one of my closest.  But my memories do not end there.... at the end of 2003 Australia hosted the Rugby World Cup and Richard and some of the Team including Tommy Kremer and Rick Cole, travelled to the sunny shores down under to spend time with me and revel in the spirit of Rugby,.... another truly memorable time with him. I last saw Richard in 2007 when I returned to the Chester on a brief trip, and he warmed my heart once again at that reunion.  I am deeply saddened by his loss ... he was a Great Man, a tireless Rugby Player, and the finest and most loyal of friends. My heart goes out to Pamela and his Children and their families. They allowed Richard to follow his passions in life, and that made him the great man he was. May he feel the green grass of a Rugby Pitch under his feet forever.  I'll miss you ol' mate !!
