From the friends of Rick Housh:

Tedrick A. Housh Jr., '61, of Overland Park, Kan., died Aug. 8, 2005, at age 69, of cancer. Prior to receiving his law degree, he received his BA from MU in 1959. After law school, he served as a law clerk to the Hon. Floyd R. Gibson, Chief Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri. He then joined the Office of the Solicitor, U.S. Department of Labor, where he served as a senior trial attorney from 1963 to 1971. From 1972 to 1973, he served as counsel for regional litigation in the Office of the Solicitor, Division of Occupational Safety and Health, in Washington, D.C. In 1973, Housh began a 25-year term as the regional solicitor of labor for the Kansas City Region. In 1979, he entered the Senior Executive Service of the U.S. as a charter member and received the Distinguished Career Service Award from then-Solicitor Ray Marshall. In 1994, he received the President of the United States' Award for the Rank of Meritorious Executive (Senior Executive Service), awarded by President Clinton.

Rick maintained many of the initial internet mailing lists for many Nikon lines and products which were then transferred to YahooGroups. He was always helpful and polite when explaining things Nikon to new users or clarifying misconceptions for those trying to bash the products or contributing to the general support and knowledge that our community offers. Rick had compiled many Nikon information lists based on his experience and years of using Nikon products. He was very excited when Nikon brought the digital line to more photographers from the astronomical prices that Kodak was asking for. He was trained as an attorney, which gave him some unique insights and he was able to write logically and explain things in a logical manner as well. Plus, the training also helped in organizing the information he compiled.
