Richard Fournier '67

From the WPI Journal:  Dick Fournier is retired from TDC Medical as Chief Technology Officer and lives in Concord, MA.  He and his wife, Anne, have four children and eight grandchildren.  "I have had the most interesting and rewarding career," Dick writes, "including aerospace, automation, and, for the last 20+ years, medical device technology.  As a cancer survivor, the most important thing I have learned is to appreciate and get the most out of every day life.  I am fortunate to have a close family and friends."  Dick's pastimes include designing and building custom furniture, riding with the Charles River Wheelmen, and competitive age group running.  An active Unitarian Universalist, he volunteers as the concord Prison, where he gives guitar lessons, and he works with mentally handicapped people at the Restoration Project.  "I always vote, but not for anyone who does not acknowledge global warming and man's contribution to it,  Human rights are very important to me," he says.  He retains fond memories of the late professor K. G. Merriam (dynamics) swinging from the classroom door to ilustrate concepts.
