Richard Friss



Over the years, I have often told my children the story of Mr. Friss and the importance of discipline and excellence in writing. He was one of my greatest influences in high school. His passion, which was often voiced as harsh criticism, was a gift.

There were, for me, 3 life-altering teachers at MDHS. Mr Friss was one. As my younger kids have gone through high school (twins - now entering their Senior Year at CPHS) I have thought about him more and more frequently. Thanks for bringing this to m

Mr. Friss, you were my favorite teacher. You changed my life, made me think for myself, awoke my political voice, encouraged & inspired me. I incorporate much of what you taught me into my own teaching. I sorely wish I could've thanked you again. <3

We are thinking of you today, as we do each day. I really miss our e-mails and the love, support and interest you showed as a Grandfather and Father in these last years. It meant so very, very much to me. I love you, Dad.

Oh Mr Friss how we butted heads! You knew I had potential somewhere inside of me. I still have the purple piece of paper you gave me with one word on it "verve". You told me I had it and to never forget it. Thank you - you are missed

I had Mr. Friss for english in the 80's. I learned so much from him that even all these years later I still benefit from the lessons. He was a great teacher. May God Bless your family.
