Walt Disney World Greeter Richard Gerth Has Passed Away

Walt Disney World Greeter Richard Gerth Has Passed AwayI’m deeply saddened to say that a legend of Walt Disney World has passed today.  Richard Gerth, who was famous as being the greeter at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort has passed away at 92 years old.

Of course Richard greeted guests, but he was so much more.  He always brought a smile to your face and made you feel like you were at home!  One of his responsibilities was to assist the brides who got married in Walt Disney World.  And he did a fantastic job!  In total he helped in over 3,500 weddings throughout his career at Disney.

Richard Gerth recently suffered from pneumonia and was placed under hospice care.  He passed away just after midnight this morning

We will miss you…. R.I.P
