Tribute

Rich DeVos was a leader. He dreamed big dreams and envisioned what could be. Always inspiring, always encouraging, he made those around him so much better than they otherwise would have been. His motivational style always reminded me of a very successful athletics coach or career mentor. Who he was as a person was one of the big reasons for his professional success. He deflected praise by recognizing those individuals, both titled and untitled, who were instrumental in group achievements. To Rich, both big and small affirmations mattered in his personal interactions with others. I don’t expect in my lifetime to see another quite like Rich DeVos. Our world is a better place because of his presence among us.
