Dick Gorelick passed away on September 12, 2010. A notice was sent out from Gorelick & Associates this morning:

“It with a profound sense of sadness that we write to inform you that Dick Gorelick passed away yesterday, Sunday, September 12, 2010. Funeral arrangements are being made, and we hope to be able to give you more information in this regard later today.

Before his health took a sudden turn for the worse this past week, Dick did prepare some content for his regular newsletter to clients. With the approval of his wife, Myrna, we will be publishing a final newsletter using this content. We would like to allow some room for those of you who knew Dick well to share some vignette or testimonial that captures the essence of who Dick was as a consultant, friend, mentor, teacher and speaker. If you would like to share a brief story (you know the length of his typical newsletter article), please e-mail your submission in care of Jennifer at [email protected] We cannot promise to use everything we receive, but we will try to capture the scope of your sentiments regarding Dick. All such testimonials will be shared with Myrna.

If Dick could address you directly, we are sure that he would want to express his gratitude to the many of you who engaged his services for the past quarter of a century. Your warm wishes and concern for Dick these past months have been passed along to his wife, Myrna. We at Gorelick & Associates, Inc. join Myrna in thanking you for your thoughts and your prayers.”
