  Dick was my first music teacher when I took up high school band. I admired him and am saddened to see that we have lost him. What a talent.

  Mr Laughlin was my choir director for Acapella, and then Music men at North Central. He left before my last year in '68, but returned a couple of years later. During the time, I was in a rock band, which he teased me about from time to time. One summer, I think between my sophomore and junior year, while we were playing at Indiana Beach, we noticed a familiar guy playing with a jazz band next to the window at the second floor cocktail lounge. Yes, it was Mr. Laughlin. Being the fine upstanding citizens we were, we tossed some small objects up to the window to get his attention. He laughed, nodded to us, and didn't miss a beat. A little later, we noticed someone had tossed a cup at us on stage, looked out, saw his beaming and laughing face, and there he was watching us during his break! Dick Laughlin was then, now, and in the future, the ONLY man that could get me to put on a Santa suit, and dance in front of a full NCHS auditorium for the song "Be a Santa." Wish I had connected with him more after HS.

  I was certainly a struggling trumpeter when I met Mr. Laughlin in Delphi. He was a great band teacher and was liked by his students. My friends who were real musicians spent a lot of time with him in "Top 20", band and choir. I remember his keen sense of humor, total dedication to music and his renditions of "Cinderella" and other somewhat goofy songs he so effortlessly performed whenever a piano was available and an ear or two willing to listen. The last time I saw Dick was at Beef 'n Boards, and now I only hope is that he will rest in peace. What a talent lost! Goodbye friend, Reed "Snooks" McCormick, DHS '61

  Dick was my teacher from 1969 - 1971 as the choir Director of Debtones - a North Central girls group. I have not spoken to him since graduation, but just this evening looked him up in the phone book in hopes that he would join me and my best friend Joyce for lunch to reminisce. Joyce and I were in the alto section, a.k.a "Mack truck section" as dubbed by Dick. I was saddened to find the number disconnected, and later find his obituary. What a great man. It was wonderful to see so many remembrances from those who knew him well. I just wanted you to know that there are many others who thought highly of him.

  I've just been thinking about him a lot today! I've felt badly about not acknowledging his passing, but the reasons have been personal. It's just been good to go through the site and "catch up" with him again!

  My memories of "Mr. Lsughlin" go back to North Central High School in the 60's. I became part of the Bell choir. We had a wonderful time in "bells" as we went out in the community to do programs. Mr. Laughlin was a wonderful instructor and mentor to all who allowed him to enter their lives. We all are better people having known him. What a role model! I wish there were more like him.

  I knew Dick less well than I knew the
"upstairs staff," but the celebration memorial Monday night did a wonderful job of showing us who Dick really was
as a man, a friend, a teacher, a musician, a partner. I am still smiling and I'm sure he and the cat
are still laughing. Love to Sean and the B&B family.

  My family and I attended last nights tribute at B&B's. Hopefully my Uncle was watching. He would have dearly enjoyed last night. I could hear him laughing and feeling the love that filled the theatre...especially the knocking over of the urn by Mr. Stark. That is my Uncle's kind of humor. He would have written that in the script himself if he could have. The theatre and staff; his teaching career and students; his vast family and friends from far and near; and Sean are what filled his every conversation and discussion we shared over the years. He dearly loved talking and telling stories of the people that he came in contact with over his 71 years. Believe me, that is many, many, people. I was very fortunate to hear many of the stories. I would have loved to hear them all. Growing up, I was always amazed and delighted to hear him play. Amazing talent. One specific thing I remember of my Uncle was that he always, always, asked about myself and my family first. He was always interested in what was going on with the person he was talking to.
I was so pleased to see the Orchestra loft commemorated to him last night. Severals times last night, I caught myself looking up at the loft, remembering the many shows that I got the pleasure to hear him perform. I will miss the phone calls and visits, when I needed to talk things out, or just bounce things off of a friend. He was an encyclopedia of information. Hopefully I can retain some of it. Thank you so much Beef and Boards for your kindness, generosity, and love. Thank you so much Sean for the care and love you gave him all of these years. Hopefully I will get the opportunity to cross paths with my Uncle again someday.
