I did not know Richard very long but I knew him to be a kind, generous, faith filled man. He asked for very little and paid back any kindness he was shown. He deserves now to be in the loving care of our Creator and experience the peace he has sought over the last few years. He will be in my prayers. Peggy Dunshee
Richard was a true friend and would do anything for you, even with all of his struggles. He will be missed by many, but has been called home and will be in a beautiful place with no suffering. RIH my friend! Rick and Karla Nejdl
I (WE) never had to worry about having such a good friend. The last few years have been pretty tough for Richard, but I can remember the day when he would give the shirt off his back if he thought that you needed it more then he. He was a true harder worker, a true friend and never looked for you to handout anything. You are in a much better place my friend, enjoy the everlasting life that God has promised, you deserve it. Until we meet again may peace be with you. Always your friend - Mitzi and Jeff Fink
