A Renaissance Man
Never one to intimidate with his vast knowledge and indelible memory, in humble confidence, Richard was the epitome of a professional expert - intellectually curious, thoughtful and even-tempered in counsel.
His vast interests - music, art, world travel - and his love of the natural world, define him as someone born of an enlightened era.
The memories he created with his family and the lessons he leaves behind will not be forgotten by those who were fortunate to have been part of his journey.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Dieterly Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the
Hunterdon Art Museum
The Hunterdon Art Museum is housed in a stone mill which sits on the south branch of the Raritan River. The original mill built on this site in 1763 supposedly ground wheat for General George Washington’s revolutionary army during its encampment in Morristown. From 1810 to 1828, Ralph Hunt owned this mill and the Red Mill across the river. At that time, the town became known as Hunt’s Mills until it was changed to Clinton in 1828, in honor of former New York Governor DeWitt Clinton who had recently died.
In March 1953, the mill was dismantled and work began to convert the building into a museum. In the twenty-first century the Hunterdon Art Museum continues to produce programs of excellence, to expand its educational mission, and to bring nationally & locally significant artists to the attention of its visitors. The museum offers more than 300 classes and workshops annually for children and adults and provides an artist-in-residence program to area schools. A tagline, “center for art, craft & design,” was developed for the museum to express the museum’s unique focus on the intersection of these concepts.
