Richard was a larger than life character and we have many fun and funny memories of him. I'm so sorry we just learned of his passing. He was a great support to Gerry in the early days of The Woodlands and getting the country club up and running. It was fun running into him in the grocery store in the last years every now and then. We hope you all have many happy memories to sustain you through this difficult time, he will be missed by many.

All of the family is in our prayers. Richard was instrumental in my early professional golf career, arranging sponsors for my first ever "trip to the Tour". We did not make much money, but I became wealthy in terms of true friends. He will be missed by all that knew him.

To the Blackmore family. Richards passing was deeply felt by me and my family. Richard and Jim Mathews helped me a lot when I started my business and I couldn't have made it without their help. We had some good times at the cookoffs that I'll never forget. Thanks for letting him come out to play. May God bless and keep you. R.I.P.
