This is truly sad news.  I had the pleasure of knowing Richard in his 
later years.  His contributions to birding and birders are 
immeasurable.  He will be missed.

from Mike Horn,
 
It is my sad duty to inform you of the passing of a truly legendary 
birder.
Richard English passed away on Monday July 11, 2011.
 
Richard was a life member of the New Haven Bird Club for approximately 
65 years
and was president from 1965 to 1967. He was also a member of several 
other
birding organizations.
Most notably, he spent time on the rare records committee of the 
Connecticut
Ornithological Association where he was member for many years.
 
Richard died at his home on East Rock Road in New Haven, CT. after a 
long
illness.
A memorial service is planned for September.
