Uncle Rich always took time to travel to Wisconsin and Minnesota to spend time with their extended family. My parents Cecie and Monte loved having them visit. Such a kind thoughtful man and extended his great kindness to our family as well. So sad for his wife (my aunt) and kids. Thanks for taking time out of your busy lives so we could be part of yours. Darlene Prissel (Toftness) Love you.

I have fond memories of Richard & Marilyn visiting us, cross country in their RV. He was such a kind and loving man. My heart goes out to you all, God bless you in this difficult time.

We didn't know Rich well, but he was always so kind and upbeat when my husband and I would run into him and his buddy, Wally at either 45th Pub and Grill or Clubhouse. He always had a smile on his face and was a great guy. It was fun playing dice with you, Rich. Your fellow farkers, Barbara and Ken. We'll miss seeing you.

Richie was a great friend and nieghbor. The time tooling around in his garage in his garage with his son Dan was some of the most fun I could have. Richie and Marilyn hosted several nieghborhood block parties and I was always amazed at all the nieghbors that showed up. They greeted everyone with a big smile and we had great fun. I have great memories with Richie and will miss him very much. R.I.P. Buddy.
