I first met Richard when he addressed our new hire class in 2012. I was nothing but a scared new hire at Silver Airways as he explained the intricacies of the pilot CBA to us. As the years went by I developed a relationship with Richard, being paired with him on a few trips as a first officer in the Saab 340. My memories of him were that of a fierce defender of the pilot base, yet always mindful of the realities of the needs of business.

He will always share a space in my heart as a great individual and friend, and I imagine even a greater father and husband. There was no finer a man.

May he rest in eternal peace, and may his loving family feel comfort in their hour of need.

What a kind loving man.....remember him when we all went to church together back at the Armory....and most recently a couple years ago as he delivered Girl Scout cookies with his daughter....all the way from Tallahassee to Plant City. He was kind to my wife and she too thought highly of him. In more recent years he reached out to one of our children. May God remember his wife and children
