Richard was a father, husband, brother, and a true friend to all he came in contact with. He loved the outdoors, especially when he was fishing or creating in his garage. He was always there ready to help people with projects, work related and otherwise. He believed in honesty and a hard day’s work, and had a quick smile to all who knew him. He will be missed by many, from California to Maine. We will never forget him. He left behind many who loved and respected him.
