Can't remember when I met Richard, it's been too long. But, he's always had a smile and a kind heart. I'll be praying for his family and friends here because he will be missed.

I am so sad to read that Richard gained his wings. I met Richard when my grandparents purchased property in Winnabow from his amazing mother. I have many memories over the years chatting with him, some sitting on Ms Long's porch drinking tea, some when we would pass at the store and others when he was keeping me on the straight and narrow. He was a kind soul, had a big heart and always had a smile. I was honored to have known him. Sending my prayers to all who loved him.

Richard and I started talking and hanging out in 2016. He was a wonderful man. Ive at least got my memories. I will miss him alot. We always called and checked on each other. He always made me laugh and he had the big beautiful smile. A part of me will always be with him. He loved his son Tyler so much and his nephew Kevin. Y'all are in my prayers.
