Condolences

Condolence From: Gary & Kathy Goshgarian
Condolence: It was through my wife Kathy that I met Dick and Harley 45 years ago. She had known them both even longer from the English Department at Northeastern where I still teach. We had become very close over the years, practically family. Dick was Uncle Dick, a generous and classy guy, bigger than life--a man whose presence filled the room, a great raconteur, a teacher and scholar who could charge the air with his wit, intelligence, and warmth. And a man devoted to Harley, his teammate and soulmate.

Over the years we had celebrated our friendship, the launching of the QRW, his getting tenure at Salem State, and nearly every birthday and Christmas, gathering at the Winchester CC at a big round table—and at all drinking the world’s finest wines Dick had provided.

His death is a loss of not only that of a greatly beloved friend but a part of our lives, a part of ourselves. You may have passed, dear friend, but you will always be with us.

Condolence From: Nick Giarratani
Condolence: I will never forget Dr. Elia and all that he did for me. He inspired me to do great things and was more than just a professor. He had a tremendous influence on my life and I will never forget him. If I only inspire my students to 1/10th the level he inspired his, I will consider my life a success. I will miss him terribly.

Condolence From: Daniel Bruce
Condolence: I am deeply saddened to hear of Richards passing. He was a very good friend and a strong supporter of mine for the past 30 years. We shared many an evening together, not only at the Quarterly Review of Wine dinners and his legendary Smokers, but also just two friends sharing a great wine together. My heart goes out to Harley and the family. We have lost a great man and his positive influence and impact has been felt by many. I for one am a better person because of Richard.

Deepest sympathies.

Condolence From: William Cornwell
Condolence: Richard was a legend at Salem State University: A favorite professor of students, and a cherished friend and colleague of faculty, staff, and administrators. He embodied the best traditions and values of the institution. Richard loved what he did, and he did it with grace, humor, cheer, and style. The second floor of the Sullivan Building is not the same without him, and I miss him.

Condolence From: Rick Meservey
Condolence: I first met Richard when he was hosting a wine dinner for Salem State. We realized we had a mutual friend,no surprise for Richard because he had so many. And so many were students, past and present, and they were always quick to seek him out on campus. When they did, he immediately engaged them, as he did with everyone, and his importance to them was obvious.It was important to me also and I am glad that he considered me a friend. I will miss him.

Condolence From: Chris Spinazzola
Condolence: All of us in the Spinazzola family have very special memories of Richard and his remarkable impact, especially through QRW. My most vivid memory of his writing though is very personal, when he wrote about my Dad after his passing in 1985. It meant the world to me. We are sending prayers and hugs to all of you. Richard Elia was a remarkable man.

Condolence From: Beth Coughlin
Condolence: I was so sorry to hear about the death of Professor Elia. I am a 1976 graduate of Salem State and had 3 classes with him. He was a wonderful teacher and really deepened my understanding and love of Victorian literature. My sincere condolences on your loss.

Condolence From: S.L. Hollingsworth
Condolence: I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Elia was an amazing man and I am a better person for having known him and having been a part of his teaching. He was passionate about literature and sought to challenge and engage his students to understand and welcome it. He loved Keats,and encouraged my love of Wordsworth. And I shall remember our discussion of John Locke, a man who thought feelings were immaterial, and yet they were not.
