Richard is my uncle. All the way back to when I was a kid,, Richard loved boats and being out on the water. I can remember 3 summers that he took my cousin Troy and myself camping in New Braunfels, tubing rapids and going out on his boat.whT I remember most about him was his command of his boat and his love for being out on the water. Richard was an easy going guy that I don’t remember ever having a harsh word come out of his mouth. As an adult going to visit Richard and Carolyn, whether at their bay house or home on Clear Lake, I always felt at ease and comfortable and offered to take on the trip on their boat. This was always a hilite for my kids. I’ll surely miss his smile and warm welcomes and sharing stories of his life.
Rest easy Uncle Richard and tell my folks hello in heaven. Thank you for the memories.

I knew Richard for many years from a manufacturer representative relationship selling to his family's business then from an employee relation when I worked with him at United Welding .
He was a very thoughtful caring individual and always treated his customers and fellow employees like family.
He always had an interesting story to tell about a sales call or a daily experience. It was a joy to work with him and know him.
R.I.P Richard !

Thinking of you Carolyn.
