I grew with Alton and his generation haven't seen him since 1970 but I hoped I’d see him again I regret not having done that.

Alton, you were the first neighbor to welcome me to the neighborhood in the summer of 2018. I would enjoy seeing your friendly smile and having a warm conversation with you and always a good laugh.

I miss you calling over to me, "Hey Rich, how you doin ". I would always chuckle and walk over to you to catch up. Today, when I walk outside I look toward your house, hoping to see and speak to you once again, You will be missed my friend. Godspeed, until we meet again.

My lifelong friend, one tough individual. A superb athlete, a great sense of humor and a great friend. Left an indelible mark in this life and did many a crazy thing, too many to list but all remarkable. He treasured his country roots and his family. He willingly shared his grandfather with me, which kept him off of the waters of the ocean. I will miss him deeply and truly mourn his passing. Rest in peace.
