One of my long time riding buddy years ago. We had lots of fun together. We affectionately referred to him as "Scabs". Seems he had trouble falling over at times. Gonna miss him. RIP.

My deepest sympathy to the Grimes Family. I grew up a block south of Richard, Pam, and Sharon. During our childhood, Richard always seemed larger than life. As we grew up, I watched him play high school football and I marveled at his size and talent. Over our lifetimes, we interacted from time to time and always in his calm demeanor. I recall seeing several of his paintings and what a gift he had.
May God continue to hold each of you close and cherish memories of a life well lived.
