Well Dick it was many years ago we met in Lebanon at the PaperBox and when we moved to Jonestown. I valued your friendship and sorry we lost touch. So glad we reconnected through your son Chris. Wish I could have done more. You were a great guy and will be missed by many. You RIP you deserve it. My prayers to the whole family. Sherry Lebanon Pa.

Richard was a great person and a great father. I remember all the fun times walking all over Lebanon with him and Chris.

He and Chris kept me out of trouble and helped me become who I am today. He will be missed and we still have the Return of the Jedi DVD that he gave to Kiel when he met my son for the first time.

You will always be in our hearts and will be missed.

I was a Richard's friend since the days we first met at the State Theater in Lebanon. We both shared a love for movies, especially horror films. Our friendship lasted through the the day he passed from this world. He will be missed.

I met Richard back in the days when I played music with Chris. He was a huge fan of our band and came out to support us at a ton of shows. Even at some of our less desirable venues. He was always a pleasure to chat with and always fun to be around. I always looked forward to seeing him! Rest in peace my old friend, you will be missed! ~Bart
