    Richard was like a second dad to me. Lived next store to him and Yvonne while I was young. We were always welcome in their home even if they weren’t there and there was no fence between our back yards. I haven’t been able to see them in years but Richard will live in my heart forever and I am happy he no longer feels any pain. Love you for ever Richard.

    Richard was a good man. I worked alongside him for years and he never failed to be helpful, kind and to offer whet ever help or guidance that you might need.
    He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

    Richard was a neighbor of my childhood friend Nicole. I have wonderful memories of hanging our at his home and how nice and welcoming he and his wife Yvonne always were. My condolences to Yvonne and the rest of his family. You are all in my thoughts.
