    Richard was one of the most kind hearted people have ever met. Without fail he always was willing to give when someone was in need. But the time that sticks out most in my mind is at Christmas time we as a GE family adopted some children in need. Richard came in one morning with load of food and toys. He told me that he NEVER wanted any child to do without especially at Christmas. This man was in angel in disquise. Always quiet, never out to be noticed but always willing to give his ALL to his family, friends and yes even strangers.He will truly be missed.
