My husband Paul and I enjoyed talking to Richard we have a model a which he helped Paul on questions that we had. When we were getting ready to finish the inside seating he showed up one day and helped Paul get this done. That was so nice of him. Will miss him with his A's boy did he have them everywhere he could put one. God Bless and I'm sure he is riding in the Model A heaven.
Prayers to all the family

Sorry for your loss. He was such a nice man and a big help to me when I had lawn mower trouble. We always enjoyed watching what he was hauling back to the barn.
