On July 5th, the Pi Chapter lost a long time leader and unique contributor to the Pi Chapter. Dick bridged many generations and was an inspiration to many. He will be sorely missed.
Below is the text of the message sent from Mark Williams, Executive Director of Psi Upsilon National.
I am saddened to report that a legend in Psi Upsilon has passed away. Dick Horstmann, Pi '57 (Syracuse) died July 5, 2009.
A memorial service will be held:
Saturday, September 12, 2009
Old Fire Station Four
229 Wolf Street
Dick was a great influence for many Psi U brothers and friends. His passion for our fraternity extended beyond the Pi chapter as he served for many years on the Executive Council as chairman of the Alumni Advisory Board. He worked hard to instill values and encourage good communications, especially through The Diamond where he lead its editorial board.
I hope you will consider attending the memorial service and share your stories of Dick with his family and friends. If you are unable to attend, please sign the guest book.
Yours in the bonds,
Mark A. Williams, Phi '76 (Michigan)
Executive Director, Psi Upsilon
