I worked with Richard for many years at Great Lakes. We were in maintenance together and were working partners for several years. Richard was always a joy to work with. I’ve learned a lot working with him. He was a very good maintenance man. He could fix just about anything with nothing to work with. I always looked up to him. I know he is in a better place now. He was one of the good ones!

David, Danny, Winston and family, Wayne and I were so sorry to hear about Richard’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

It will be hard to look across the church and know he won’t be there. Richard was so faithful in worshiping every service. 🙏🏻
