Richard was the stepfather of one of my dearest friends, Lisa Stewart. Lisa and I met when we were roomates at USC. Richard has been such a good friend to both my mother and me, over the years. When my mother needed to move out of a two story house because her knees could no longer make it up so many stairs, Richard helped us with our move. Fond memories of Richard include changing a light fixture together! He was very handy and I passed him the tools that he needed while on the ladder! Whenever I was sick in the hospital, Richard would visit and tell me jokes and stories about whatever was going on. He was very kind, helpful, and talkative. We will miss him!

My brother was born in Chicago, where our family lived until Richard moved to California for work. Our parents moved to Florida when my dad retired, and I remain in Chicago, a native son.
Richard and I used to meet for lunch at O’Hare airport in the pre TSA era, where he changed planes for Buffalo New York, and the east coast Xerox factory.
I have many great memories of him, so long and say hello to uncle Steve for me.
