We were always so impressed with Richard’s intelligence. Had no idea what topic he would introduce at a family gathering, but he sure kept our attention. Wanted to help people in any way he could and for all people everywhere to enjoy life. Sincere Condolences to Sandy and all the family!

Condolences to Richard's family from all of us at the former Auto Body Supply Co. We all loved it when Rich visited out store. He always had a great story to tell or questions to ask about autobody repair. We enjoyed talking and laughing with him. He was a great man who treated us all with respect and kindness. We all knew how intelligent Rich was but until we read the obituary we had no idea of what he had accomplished in his lifetime. We wiil miss him but will always remember him. God bless you all
