We were saddened to hear the news about Rich's passing. How time flies & we realize how many years it has been since we've seen each other last. It is comforting to know that he had been sharing his talents as a teacher and mentoring youths in our area. It seemed like a lifetime ago when Rich and I worked together. My husband, a co-worker/friend at the time, worked for Rich in the Applications Engineering group, when we were all at AMD/Vantis together. It was a fun and exciting time at the company. Rich, although not much our senior, seemed to have life experiences of someone twice his age =) He was always able to enrich any conversation and willing to share sage advice with those newer to the industry. He will be remembered for his smile and his unassuming swagger. Rich, your Vantis family has been thinking of you and all the wonderful memories we shared during the time our paths had crossed. Good Times!

My kids and I are very sadden of hearing Richard passing away. He was such a warming and caring Kumon instructor. We have been with him over 7 years. He and I sometime set and talked about everything, and he would always give me life tips and stories. I am shocked and very sad to hear this new. The last question he asked me was. “Have you been doing homework at home with your kids, tiger mom?” Now, I will not be able to hear his jokes, funny stories and bright smile again. May he Rest In Peace and be in the gate of heaven.. ❤️❤️??

Dearest Brenda, I love this photograph of Mr. Chin. It captures his adventurous and joyous spirit. I am sure the world is a little dimmer for his absence, but that you will carry on his light in the world and bring the love he brought to you back out to this weary, wondering world. May Rich Chin cross over in peace, surrounded by all the love he inspired. Fondly, Kathleen
