Richard was a good friend and associate, he was always happy and out going, he always was concern about other people always checking to make sure I was okay? Knowing when I wasn't feeling good or something was bottering me, you see I lose my wife of 47 years a year ago and I'm a cancer survivor but have issues at times and Richard was aware. At times I would be down or not feeling good and he knew and always keep and eye out. Saying something to up lift me, he was a good friend kind, and caring I'm going to miss his crazy jokes and his caring smile. God has another helper and we've lost another angel, rest well my friend rest well!
My condolences and prayers to his family you raised a good respectful son!

The Wellness Center will not be the same without Rich coming in and brightening our days. He was was a positive and fun light the shined whenever he walked through the Wellness Center doors. I have spoken to many Wellness members who are devastated by this loss. I hope we all can learn a good joke and spread the good energy that Rich brought to us. Thanks for the good memories Rich.

Had the pleasure of knowing Rich for 35 years, was an honor to call him family! He was always happy to see me and always had a joke to tell. He was an inspiration in that he always had a smile on his face and legitimately wanted the best for everybody he came into contact with. There was not a more hard working, loyal person. He wore that Wal-mart badge with pride and was always eager to tell you how many years of service he had. He found the greatest joy in some of the simplest things in life; a good meal, a board game with family, or a good slice of cake. My favorite memory with Rich was the first time I took him to Dave and Busters; it was truly his Graceland. He loved it there and was like a celebrity in that place, they all knew his name and treated him great. I'll think of him every time I walk in there. You will be missed my friend!

We lived down the street from Rich and his Mom. He was always smiling and had something nice to say to everyone. After we moved from Hazelwood, I would sometimes make a special trip to the Legends Wal-Mart jut to say hi to Rich. We've lost a kind and caring person. RIP Richie.
