To Richard’s Family,

I met him when we visited the Courtyards with my dad. He was so boisterous and happy. He was so welcoming and friendly to my dad and my family. I loved hanging out with him when I visited dad. His favorite thing when I came was a huge hug. He was such a wonderful man. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. He will be missed.

Sabra, Dick was one of the first football coaches I ever had. In Grasshopper league. It was him Jimmy Jones and Charlie Wright. He was a nice man. I'm so sorry for your loss and I'll be praying for you and Ritchie.

I am so sad to read that Richard has passed away. I met him at the assisted living facility where my uncle was a resident. He was a sweet man that kept me laughing. I would often laughingly tell him that he was a mess. He was such a prankster and he knew how to draw people in. My heart hurts for his family and friends. I pray for peace for all.

Sabra, Richie and and families,
One of the 1st times your mother had a date with Dick in the late 50's or early 60's, I was there. Many times we double dated.
In recent years I would see him in the grocery store sorting his coupons and telling me where the bargains were.
I am so sorry for you loss. May God bless each of you and comfort you in the days ahead.
