Did Richard have a favorite phrase or common mannerism?

Christine Wright
The late Richard "Gorilla" Osborne knew every prominent executive in the Northeastern Ohio area; and encouraged his Graduate Students to review case studies of Ohio Businesses that survived an asset sale, including stories of the rise and fall of many prominent Ohio Banks. He welcomed local CEOs to visit with his students.

His famous mannerism: a pause followed by a sip of water before commenting on any number of student questions. He answered them all.
Theodore Austin
The iconic, infectious laugh.
