    Richard my friend, my heart is broken. You were such a strong hard working man. Every time we talked or got together you always made me smile. I always enjoyed talking with you whether it was about jobs we were working on, football, or just life. You will be missed. Love you Brother.

    Richard was a great person; I was very saddened when I heard the news that he had passed away. Every time I would see him out in public he would always be smiling and in a happy mood. I would ask him how he was doing and how life was he would reply great couldn’t be better. He will be missed but I will always remember him as a great friend.

    I was quite shocked to hear about Richard and I am heartbroken for his loved ones. I played pickleball with Richard and always enjoyed playing with or against him. He was a good sport and had such a lovely, gentle manner. His kind smile, wonderful laugh, and sweet, gentlemanly ways will continue to make me smile whenever I think of him.

Leave a Remembrance
