Pals since first grade, Richard was a special friend as we served our communities and country proudly. While some kids became blood brothers, Richard and I became tar brothers as we chewed fresh tar when we could find it. We didn’t have money for fancy chewing gum so improvised the best we could. Throughout life we shared many wonderful memories. Carry on soldier.

Richard was not only our driver but was a part of our travel group. We always enjoyed our travel with him in the “drivers seat” and as soon as everyone was safe in our hotel rooms he then could sit back and have fun with them. He was a great driver but more important a friend to our group.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Richard was quite a guy and always made me laugh through his Facebook postings. We were lifelong friends and I will miss him terribly. I have sent up prayers for his entire family and friends. God bless all of you.

Gosh Richard, I'm so sad about your passing. I didn't know you well, but looked forward to your daily comments! If I needed to know something about what's going on in town you were the one I asked. See you again one day! Don't forget to vote!!!
