was a singin? and guitar-playin? cowboy who was a lover of music and a lover of life. He was a carpenter
whose passion was building furniture for the people he loved. He was an extremely charismatic person
who was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Richard was a man who passionately
and eternally loved his wife; but mostly, he was a daddy who loved swinging in the swings and sliding
down the slide in the park with his kids; who was not afraid to throw his hat on the floor for his kids
to play with or allow them to help him strum a tune on his old guitar. It will be his children who will
miss him most of all.
