Richard's family, You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Richard will be missed and remembered by all who knew him, he was a great Fuller Brush man, well known in Sherwood sub-division. My husband was also in Sunrise Manor 2004-2005. We have been neighbors since 1966, my son Mark remembers him well as Richard enjoyed seeing him at Halloween time to give him a special trick/treat gift.
RIP Richard
