Richard Dupee (1938 – 2011) was a smart, quiet and caring soul. Recognized as one of the better ministers of his generation, his extra dry sense of humor was always enjoyed by those that got to be in his presence on a regular basis. After losing his parents so early in his life, he worked to provide and encouraging and supportive home for his family. At one of lowest points in my life, and after waiting nearly a month to tell him about the shameful thing I was going to do, his first words to me were “You should have done that a long time ago. What took you so long?” Shocked by his response and stunned by his encouragement, I can honestly say that was one of the greatest moments of life. He could read people like no one else and didn’t hold back about giving people exactly what they need in the moment, whether they knew it or not.
