Evening of celebration of professor Richard Rundell to be held Saturday

"You Again:" a celebration of the life of Richard Rundell will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 10, at the ASNMSU Center for the Arts. Please join the Rundell family for a rollicking and fitting tribute to a man who served on the New Mexico State University faculty for 40 years. The evening will include testimonials from family and dear friends, video and photo montages of Rundell?s vast theatrical career spanning more than 60 years, and songs from shows Rundell performed in for the American Southwest Theatre Company, Las Cruces Community Theatre, Dona Ana Lyric Opera and Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra.

Among those planning and participating in this celebration of life are Mark Medoff, David Edwards, Jon Linford, Ross Marks, Megan McQueen, Janet Beatty-Payne, Bob Diven, Chris Sanders, Brandon Brown, Gail Wheeler, Mark Milliorn, Chris Wickham plus a chorus led by Diane Schutz and support staff led by Ellie Schwartz of fives, tens, maybe hundreds of grateful-to-serve singers and volunteers. And, yes, there will be an olive green vest there, pockets stuffed with surprises. Oh, and laughter will be permissible, as Rundell reveled in and encouraged so much of that. There will be a reception following the memorial at the Center for the Arts.

The event is not ticketed and there are no reserved seats. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

To honor the memory of Rundell, the family is establishing a memorial fund in his name at New Mexico State University. Gifts made payable to the NMSU Foundation can be mailed to NMSU Foundation, P.O. Box 3590, Las Cruces, NM 88003-3590. Gifts can also be made online at https://advancing.nmsu.edu/givenow. A collection box will be available in the lobby throughout the memorial for those wanting to make donations by check or cash.
