Richard really helped me get integrated into the church. A few days after joining the church, Richard and Fred Jarvis showed up at my house under the pretext of helping plan an elders quorum activity. We discovered mutual interest in cars, guns and hunting. Three or 4 hours later they departed as friends. I’m not sure we ever discussed the party.
Richard and I also served in scouts together and I vividly remember making bombs that we would take over to the canals, toss them in at night and watch the water make rather large bubbles. We got in trouble with the parents and shortly after I was released😇
