Dear Friends and Family of Richard Hollis,

I knew Richard for many years--he was a kind person. I knew him before and after I married my husband Dennis,

Richard came to see our new child each time we had one-----we had four sons!

My first college dance was with Richard.

God Bless you Richard---that perfection you were looking for--it's with God! I know you are finally happy, and whole. Love Barb Curry and sons Dennis, George, Jon, and Kurt

That is a wonderful and accurate tribute to Richard written by his brother Ken. I knew Rich from the first grade on and for several years lived just two doors from him. Like Keith and Stan, I was a close friend of his. Yes, Richard was a truly gifted athlete and a lifelong nice guy, but what younger folks may not know is that as a youngster Rich had a big, outgoing sense of humor. I saw him double over in laughter countless times. It broke my heart in later years to see how his affliction had dampened that. Life was not fair to our pal.

I was not only a neighbor and played a lot of those great baseball games with him , we were friends . It really is with deep sadness to read of Richards passing.
Rest in peace Richard

I played Little League baseball with Richard on the Red Comets the year we played the Mud Hens in the city championship games. He was one heck of a pitcher. I still recall Richard's notebook over-flowing with math papers at SHS. I took him to our high school class reunion, SHS Class of 58, for our 45th reunion. It is my prayer that Richard has found the peace he so richly deserves.
His friend,
Keith Schnepp
