Richard was one of the best route salesman I had working for me when I was the local manager for Wonder Bread in Fort Smith. He was very dependable and had a very good working relationship with the merchants.
He will be missed by all who knew him.

Nothing but wonderful memories of Richard! Loved him and his first wife Betty, who sold me my first new home, which I still have the lead crystal candy dish which they both gave me for an open house gift. As a bread man (supervisor) at Shipley Baking Co (Holsum Bread) back in the 1980's we worked together. He always loved drinking coffee with my late dad who also worked there also. You both have a cup of coffee for me, and rest easy sir, your journey is now complete on this Earth!
