Richard Geuter, founder of Working Together and great friend to many, sadly passed away at home yesterday after his brave battle against a long illness.
Our love and thoughts are with Susan, Thomas and Daniel and sister Miranda.
The family has asked to be left in peace for the time being. In due course we will all come together to celebrate Richard’s life and give thanks for his legacy.
As founder of Working Together Ludlow Richard dedicated much of his life to supporting those with learning difficulties and disabilities, creating positive opportunities and encouraging inclusivity in our community.
Richard’s work remains an inspiration to us all and we will continue to build on his strong foundations.
Rest in peace Richard
Trustee Roma Jackson paid the following tribute to Richard:
Richard will be greatly missed not least by his wonderful family. Our
thoughts are with them at this sad time. He really was a very special man in so many ways as you all know. I think this poem is about him and how he affected the lives of all who knew him.
A Life Well Lived
A life well lived is a precious gift of hope and strength and grace
From someone who has made our world a brighter, better place.
It’s filled with moments sweet and sad with smiles and sometimes tears
With friendships formed and good times shared and laughter through the years.
A life well lived is a legacy of joy and pride and pleasure;
A living, lasting memory our grateful hearts will treasure.
Love from all at the Working Together family
