With Sympathy - Passing of Richard "Dick" Wainerdi, PhD

It is with deep sadness that we share the passing of Dr. Richard “Dick” Wainerdi.  Dick was a strong supporter of Ronald McDonald House Houston from the very beginning, and was the catalyst for securing the very property where we reside today on Holcombe Boulevard. At that time, 1907 Holcombe was being developed for potential Texas Medical Center institutions and Dick contacted us to offer it to RMHH. The RMHH Board was looking for a permanent home at that time. Dick served on our RMHH Advisory Board for many years.

Dick Wainerdi will always be remembered because the Cambridge street bridge leading to RMH Houston’s Holcombe House bears his name.
