    A wonderful brother-in-law who opened his home to our “tribe” for the last 39 years! We love you, Richard, and your generous heart. Your fun-loving ribbing and quick response to a need were highlights.Sooo many happy memories flood my mind when I think of our visits. We will visit again one day and I bet you’ll have the coffee ready!

    Richard was a good friend in high school (Class of 1970). It was always a treat to run into him in subsequent years and catch up. The loss of such a good man makes the world a little sadder.

    Carol, Phillip and family, I am so sorry for your loss.
    Clifford and Willene were dear friends of my parents, and always
    spoke so proudly of their sons.
