      Wikipedia has one particular photo of him (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Usenix84_1.jpg), a snippet of the description of which I always enjoy:

      It has been asked: How come everyone in this photo is smiling except Dennis Richie? trb responds “That’s easy. Because we were with Dennis, and he was with us.”

        Ah! That’s awesome, I think this is the first time I’ve seen photos of him without the iconic beard. Interesting that his Dad worked at Bell Labs too, I learn something new everyday!
