It was such an honor and pleasure to get to know Mr. Spier over the years I delivered meals to him. Like the other volunteers who have left testimonials here, I too will forever be touched by his kind and gentle demeanor, his words "you be careful now" as I headed back to my car, his pleasure at sharing the cucumbers and squash he grew. Each meal delivery took little time but the brief interaction was more than enough to feel like Mr. Spier was indeed a part of your own family... the MOW (Meals on Wheels) family. I'll miss him but remember him with great fondness.

Richard was a sweet and gentle person who always shared a smile with us whenever my wife and I had the pleasure of delivering his Meals On Wheels. The biggest compliment I can pay him is to wish to be that same person if and when I reach his age, RIP my friend.

To the Spier Family:

As one of the Meals on Wheels volunteers, I certainly enjoyed seeing Richard once or more a month for the past 5 years.

The other volunteers have all said what I experienced. Richard made it worthwhile doing what we do. I will truly miss his smile and great disposition.

Thought for sure he would make it to 100. Your family had a great example of a fine human being. Gary Munder

I was one of many people who had the privilege of knowing Mr. Spier. I saw him when I brought him lunch and he was always the highlight of my day. I never met anyone whose outlook was as positive as his. No matter the weather, or how he was feeling, he’d greet me with a smile and a kind word. He always looked sharp, and just last week when I asked how he was feeling he told me he was “still kicking - just not that high!” He will be missed by all. I know he’ll make heaven a happier place with his arrival. Sending prayers of comfort to his family.

Richard was absolutely one of the kindest gentle men I have ever known, forever smiling and speaking good words. I have taken Meals on Wheels to him for the last few years and treasure our time talking about his son, his grandson and his red truck.

It became apparent he loved gardening and was successful at it. He was generous with his squash and other produce because when I came by he had it ready to take on the bench at his back door.

I always looked forward to seeing him and will miss him a lot. I admired this remarkable strong man who lived on his own in a positive way in spite of his many afflictions. He was an example to us all.

Dear Family: I am a volunteer with meals on wheels and I served Mr. Spier for about ten years. He was one of the nicest and most gentlemanly men that I have ever known.

He always gave me vegetables from his garden and he always said "be careful" after I delivered him a meal.

I will really miss his sweet disposition and kind heart. Anne Cook
