    Richard always had a smile to share. I first met him working the Jr.Miss Pageant back in the JayCee Days. He helped with lighting for the Dance Studio Shows for years. Life is just too short. I'll miss him. Peace, Strength and Love to his family.

    Richard was an incredibly hard working and giving man. I worked with him way back in the day during Sunfest and then years later he so kindly set-up the dance floor and sound system for my wedding. Never hesitated once to help out a friend.

    I first met Richard in the mid-1970's when he was playing bass for a band called Random Access (with Larry Boggs et al). Richard was always a great supporter of music in our community. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

    Richard will be missed by our family. He was such a great guy. Many evenings were spent together preparing for Sunfest. He had a spirit of love and joy that showed in everything he did.
