    Richard and his wife Linda are our best friends. Our friendship started in 1992 when I moved next door (or what I would tell everyone – I lived in their back yard) and continues today. George Jewell would often refer to Richard as “coach” (especially when they cheated at cards!) but George always called Richard his friend! Richard’s long battle with Parkinsons was fought with courage and an abiding faith. He fought long and hard and we rejoice that he is no longer in pain. We will miss him!

    Dick was a very close friend and I will miss him. He fought a very long battle with Parkinson disease. During all his struggles he was supportive of others. This strong NY Yankees baseball fan was a great sport of life itself. The void in all of this friends lives will be eventually replaced with the knowledge of the blessing God gave us with his presence.

    I knew Richard through working with Linda. I am so sorry to hear the news of his passing but thankful that he is no longer suffering.
