I am honored and blessed to know my father-in-law Richard Richey. He served our great country in the Marines! He was a family man who had a huge impact on two families, 5 kids, 9 grandkids, and 3 great grandkids. I'll always remember him and Rae travelling around the country for 15 years serving as park rangers. In addition, as he worked with different crafts making our Wedding Cake, making Samantha her first potty chair with book holder and her first table and chairs. He always had a smile on his face his face, very respectful, and brought up his children to think for themselves. RIP Richard Richey.

I knew Richard when I was a kid (50+ years ago) and my memories are that he was a good, kind man. May he rest in peace and God bless his family.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time and in a crazy year to boot. I was fortunate to meet Richard on a few occasions and he was always very friendly to me and made me feel welcome even at family celebrations. I will always appreciate that. Best wishes to all of you while you mourn this kind man.
