Richard was my neighbor, I always enjoyed going over & having a glass of wine by his pool. His house was filled with beautiful materials. May the perpetual light shine upon him.
Erin (former student)
As a 1st grader in Mr Lussier’s class in the early 1980’s, I spent many hours a day with Mr Lussier. I remember circle time with him at morning class meetings and working on Scholastic Newsletters with him and the whole class. As a 6 year old, I remember noticing how he always pulled up on his pants at the knees before he sat down. Ha,ha, we never know exactly what our students are focusing on in class. I have since become a public school teacher myself. I sure wish I could have seen him one more time to let him know the memories he helped create in my young life. Once I really didn’t want to be called on by him to answer a question and I hid under my desk. Of course being under a desk just called more attention to myself and he called me to get out from under the desk. As I recall though, he gave me a pass on answering the question in front of class. Thank you, Mr Lussier for being a dedicated teacher all those years.
