Richard, our dear friend for nine years was a kind man who enjoyed his family and friends and always had a twinkle in his eye. He loved baseball and music and especially dancing at the Rec Bowl in Mt. Clemens. We enjoyed our talks when we were together for dinner at the Aspen or Country Inn Restaurants. He will be greatly missed.
God Bless Richard and his family.

Mr. Whitmore's legacy can be seen by his wonderful family, especially his grandchildren -- some of whom I've had the pleasure of teaching.
