I’m really sad to hear this. Richard was a good hearted kind soul. And always there when you needed him. I know many times I called him in the early hours of the morning when I had gotten my Jeep stuck in whatever mud hole I shouldn’t have been in. And 30 minutes later here he comes on this huge John Deere tractor. He would open the cab say a few curse words and laugh at me and then pull us out. He was a great friend and we had many good times and lots of laughs. He will be missed.

I remember when we were teenager boys my brother Ray his brother Charlie, all of us would go play basketball, baseball or some other sport, Richard was never interested in that he would go to the farmers house next door and go to the market with him or ride his tractor he loved driving one. May you rest in peace brother.
