Friday, May 31, 2019My husband, Jim, and I just recently learned of your loss. We extend our heartiest condolences to all of the family. Dick was certainly a unique individual that God blessed with a variety of talents that he shared generously with so many individuals. We were blessed with his counseling and guidance at Oak Lane Presbyterian Church when we married 58 years ago. We also were fortunate to have him and the family visit with us in Florida for several years, and we enjoyed the annual Armstrong family calendar. Our hearts are filled with wonderful memories and much love! We thank the Lord for the gift that his life and wisdom have meant to so many in this world. Jim and Lynne Passilla

Saturday, May 11, 2019While preparing my sermon for tomorrow (May 12, 2019) I decided to "Google" Dr. Armstrong because I am beginning by talking about the most influential person other than my parents I ever met, Rev. Dr. Richard Armstrong is that person. Dick offered a class in Stewardship while I was at Princeton and during the course of the semester we spent together he gifted me with a foundation for my ministry. His humility, grace, wisdom and quiet passion has stayed with me through the years. I think of him often. What a blessing to know such an amazing human being. My heartfelt prayers are with his family as you continue to celebrate his life.

Tuesday, March 19, 2019Richard’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/awake-no3-2018-nov-dec/

Saturday, March 16, 2019As Derek Kanarek’s father-in-law I have heard on many occasions the remarkable achievements of Reverend Armstrong, AKA Grandy. However, this wonderful review of his life is more amazing than I could ever imagine. He will be sorely missed by family, friends, colleagues, and congregations. Memories of Dick will bring tears of sadness and joy to all who knew him and loved him. To my loved ones who knew him, my deepest sympathies and condolences. Love Roger and Ruth Shell.

Saturday, March 16, 2019As a childhood friend of Woody, my earliest memories of Rev. Armstrong are of him refereeing our basketball games in 1969 and 1970. In more recent years, as the son of residents of The Windrows, I always looked forward to seeing his smiling face while visiting my parents. He never really changed over those fifty years. He was always friendly, outgoing, and good-natured, exuding his own unique brand of joie-de-vivre. (That's not to say he didn't keep up with the times. I got a big kick out of his "Rappin' Rev" video, which wouldn't have made much sense fifty years ago.) Woody, Andy, and Elsie, you were very lucky to have such a special man as your father. Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.

Thursday, March 14, 2019MY Mom and Dad , Barb and John Leonard were great friends with Dick growing up in Princeton also Margie after they got married. Although they moved to Arizona they kept in touch their whole life. 2014 I brought my Mom back to visit Dick and we got the grand tour of Princeton he drove us everywhere. We got to play the piano and sing with him and it was the last time my Mom got to see him in person. For me it was the best trip ever and I got to bring my daughter with me and enjoy the beauty of Princeton in the spring. My mom passed in Sept 2018 and I know she will be blessed to have Dick at her side now, I am sorry for your loss its very hard missing them so often. Dick was an AMAZING person I am blessed to have know him. Much Love. Karen Leonard Allen

Wednesday, March 13, 2019Our beloved Dick Armstrong is in God's Hall of Fame, What a rich, full, productive and Christ-like life Dick lived. He was a man of many talents and gifts and sold out in every endeavor, which were many. Dick was a valuable pioneer in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes movement, especially the early years. And now, FCA is worldwide and continues to have a major impact upon the youth of America and beyond. Thank God for Dick Armstrong, a special kind of man. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints"...Psalms 116:15 Wayne Atcheson Charlotte, NC
