Gosh my heart aches over this one:(
It was an honor to know and work alongside Richard. He was such a great role model. I loved that he was always bursting with joy..and that he always said "oh Boy". I always looked forward to his arrival so that I could hear the many stories he had to share.
This man had a heart of gold and an overwhelming love for his beautiful wife Joanne.

He will be deeply missed. ❤
