Memorial Tributes
This tribute was added by Sandy O'Neal on 30th September 2016

"In the years that I have been a caregiver I never met anyone quite like Richard. He was an original, with everything he dealt with on a daily basis he was still smiling, and always singing. I new each day that I went to his house he'd have another story to tell me. I truly loved my job because I truly loved Richard, he was a kind, honest, sweet, generous man and he is greatly missed. He loved his kids and grandkids beyond measure and he was an inspiration to me and so many others. Thank you Richard for sharing your life and your wonderful smile with us!"

"Dickie will be forever loved, missed and remembered by all of us who had the honor of his friendship.  A man who never stopped smiling, never stopped loving and never stopped giving even as life handed him numerous hardships and obstacles.  He is a true hero in my book.  And I know... if there are speed limits in heaven he's gonna have a glove box full of tickets."

"Rick, Rachael, I am so sorry for your loss. Nothing prepares us for the emptiness the loss of a loved one brings. I hope you wrap your pain in the stories people share and the comfort that we offer. My thoughts are with you and your entire family as you struggle with your loss."
