So sorry to learn of your Dad’s passing. I recall many good times talking to him while you guys were in school. He also built a small storage for me that led to spending more time and conversations with him.
My sincere condolences to your entire family.

Bob, Scott and Brooke, so sorry for your loss. Spent many good time with your Dad before and after he married your Mom. He was a good guy and a good friend and classmate to Ronnie. He left a nice snapshot of Ronnie at the hardware with Ronda that I will always cherish. It was at your house with Ronnie setting in a chair reading The Popular Mechanics in his gas station uniform. Vicki Bob and Ronda in a cardboard box in front of him. They were so young. Such a cute pic. I have it on my fridge. I called your Dad to thank him but didn't get to talk very long because he was leaving for an appt. That was prob nearly 2 yrs ago and he said he had not been well. These golden years are sometimes not so good. Hope you are all doing well. Enjoyed seeing Bob at some of the grands ball games and Scott on facebook. Lost track of Brooke since Ruby is gone. God Bless!

This is when we find it so hard to live far away. Please accept our condolences. These two classmates had a lot of good times hunting and
fishing. Got to see Dick a couple years ago and that was great. So glad we did.
Let us hear from you boys.

Heaven has received an amazing man. I feel so blessed to have gotten to know the amazing, kind and very talented Richard. I have many wood items made from him, that will be cherished and passed down through my family. I will miss his great sense of humor and all the jokes of how great it is to be a Buckeye fan, and not Michigan!! The great conversations will be missed at State Farm, most of all Richards generosity. Please except my condolence
