I almost called Richard last week. I can’t believe he beat me to the “draw”. We were surprised and found out only because our son was looking up some history of Greencastle. We are so sorry for your loss but so happy for Richard to be with June. Our love always! Bette Rose and Frank

A great man. Like a second dad and one of the funniest people I’ve ever known. Quick with a jab. Dang, I’ll miss this guy. It gives me comfort to picture he and my dad back together.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Richard was a treasured friend. His presence will be missed from this world. He always had a laugh and a smile no matter what the circumstances were.
