A Surprise on His Seventieth
On May 29th, Rich was surprised by his family (Sue, Barb, Beth, Marj, and Meg) and a host of former students, postdocs and colleagues with a party to celebrate his 70th birthday. It began with a breakfast in his backyard and proceeded through seminars at KU and a tour of the new research facilities. The finale was a barbeque at the Givens' residence, complete with toasts and roasts. The day long party and these videos were the result of dedicated hard work of his wife, Sue, and his daughters, Special thanks go to:
Sue Givens (the Organizer!!)
Barb and Jon Heeb, Rachel and Harrison
Beth and Jack Porter, Cam and Clare
Marj Givens and Trey Sato, Jane and Jeffrey
