Uncle Richard was one of a kind man someone to go to for answers At times no one else could answer. He was a foot Ball dictionary if you needed to know anything about anything on the football player and scoring and winning. If you need to hear the joke of the day he will till you the joke and more and at the same time did not spell a drop of his MILLER LIGHT BEER that he held with his Beer Holding Arm. LOL. You will be missed but not forgotten. RIP TIo Richard. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
