My uncle Richard embodied everything anyone would ever want in an uncle. He never failed to call when he was travelling west and always went out of his way to stop by to see me, even after my mother, his sister, had passed away. You will be missed by all.

Uncle Richard. My Uncle Richard. I so loved my Uncle Richard with the love growing and deepening over the years. From my earliest memories of the Japanese toys he got for me in the Navy to the support he gave when my parents were declining. I can't even count the times he flew to Billings, MT. He would arrive with a smile and lots of positive energy. He was so appreciated. He was a big part of my life. A very good part. He was an awesome Uncle. I will always love him and I will miss him forever.
