I didn’t know Richard but he helped my mom and dad thru some rough time and they always liked him and said he was a very nice and understanding person. I know what it’s like to lose someone, lost my dad 15 yrs ago and just lost my mom on the 11th. My thoughts and prayers are with you thru this tough time.

Dear Sandy and family, I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and Dick.
Erika and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. With deepest sympathy.
Richard’s siblings and their families will miss our oldest brother’s wonderful wit and sense of humor.He loved telling stories of our family and to me was a true Renaissance Man. His love for his family and granddaughters will live on in all of us who were lucky to be part of his life.
