My deepest condolences.


Please forward this message on to the Beyer family if this does not reach them directly.
My name is Liz Rekevics. My father, Seattle architect Karlis Rekevics worked on a few projects with Rich years go. My brother, Karlis Rekevics (also) had an apprenticeship with Rich before he moved to New York to pursue his artistic career as a sculptor.

A number of years ago - Rich joined my brother, my father, my uncle (Valdis Zarins, also a sculptor) on a RFP for the veterans’ memorial at the Washington Capital in Olympia. While we didn't get the project, it was a joy to watch such great minds and creativity come together. I actually believe I still have the models Rich created for the presentation.
I remember Rich fondly - My father took me along on a number of drives to a few projects they worked on together. My fondest memory was his story telling. I would sit calmly as an 8 year old (or thereabouts) for a few hours just listening and smiling. My father found it important for me to have the experience of knowing this great man. I have thought of him over the years when I see his many works in the Seattle area. I am honored to have known him. I am so sorry for your loss.

My father passed away almost 10 years ago, so I understand the loss of greatness. However, I have learned that all the lessons he left behind have eased the loss and void left behind. I hope the same for you and your family.
My deepest condolences.
Lizzy Rekevics and family.
