Dear Mart, Jack and I are so sorry to hear about your son's passing. I just asked Linda about him the last time we talked on the phone. He sure did have a hard struggle and now he is out of his pain and suffering. Our prayers and thoughts go to you and the family. May God give you strength to cope with your loss.

Our church family has been praying for Rich and all of you since the accident happened. He was such a fun guy. He and Cheryl had a party right after Larry and Maureen started dating and they invited me. We were all dancing in the basement and having loads of fun. That's a great memory for me. Bless you all.

Lori, Duston, Holly,

We are saddened by Rich's passing. Though we didn't get to see him much he was in our memories as a story teller and bull.... about anything he could come up with. One memory I'll never forget is hunting with him and several others and he tried to "catch" a rabbit that we were all waiting to shoot. Of course the rabbit got away, Please know Flo and my prayers are with you, May God bless you at this difficult time.
We love you all. Aunt Flo and Uncle Jim

Rich was one of my brother's best friends so he spent a lot of time at our house.
One time he left his green Barracuda in our driveway for the afternoon and....welp, that's how I learned to drive! My heart goes out to the Falk Family.
