If you were fortunate enough to have known Richard he was someone that you didn’t need to know for a long time to befriend him. You felt you knew him your whole life. He was a loving family man. His wife of 22 years knew she was cherished and loved with his whole heart. They never said good-bye but always said see you later knowing they would be with the Lord and would wait for the other. He was a loving Father and Grandfather and made the girls feel their worth and the boys knew they had a great example. Richard also adored all of his siblings. He was baptized at 70 years old and praised the Lord always. He lived hard and strong but his heart was as soft as cotton. He was a strong believer, an avid fisherman, collected baseball memorabilia, cared for all animals, enjoyed games of all kinds and was a champion billiards player.
