I'm so sorry to hear about Richard, I absolutely adored him. He reminded me of my Dad every time I seen him. He always had a smile on his face. I hope him and my Mom are in separate choirs in Heaven or they may have to be put in time out 😇😇😇 Prayers for the family

Dick was a very patience individual. We would trout fish together and if you were not catching fish as fast as Dick was, Dick would stop fishing and come see why you were not catching fish. Dick would share his bait and give you on the spot lessons of proper casting and setting the hook. Dick would help anyone and would loan you the shirt off his back. Glad I met a friend in Dick and got to spend some time with him. Rest In Peace Brother. See you in heaven someday.
