  1. Richard was a good man, he would help you if you needed help.He came by the Sinclair station I worked at everyday I worked just to talk.He will be missed.RIP brother.

  2. Richard was a classmate of my sister’s (Donna) at CCHS, and was once of her best friends throughout her lifetime. They were neighbors in Lawson for many years, and of course they both worked at Loveland for MANY years. I remember being with them one time (20 years ago or more) Donna teased him a bit about ‘why did we never explore being more than friends . ?” Richard said, “No, that would have ruined a beautiful friendship.” Richard was the kind of guy with lots of best friends, because he was always smiling, always positive – and he didn’t have a mean bone in his body.
