Richard Paterson ’53 passionately loved nature, sports, his community and his family. Richard’s passion forathletics was a thread running throughout his life. He was an outstanding high school athlete himself, inducted into the Champaign Central Hall of Fame in 1970. He remained a loyal Champaign Central fan and proudly continued to serve, until present, on the Champaign Central C-Club. He coached his three daughters on various youth swimming, softball and flag football teams and most recently received much joy watching his eight grandchildren compete in numerous sports.
