I practiced law with Richard for about 5 years back in the 90's. He hired me fresh out of law school and we became fast friends. We shared a love for all things Razorback and managed to pull off a few fishing trips as well. I lost touch with Richard after moving out of state but will never forget what a great friend and mentor he was for me and many others. I know he will be missed by family and friends but take comfort in the fact that he is now home with his heavenly father.

Richard gave me my first law job. To paraphrase something my trial advocacy professor, Dent Gitchell, often said, "your Honor, I'll connect it up."
The Lord works in mysterious ways. Rev. Pope's message at the service/celebration today about predestination may be illustrated by the brief time that Richard and I crossed paths in life. Had Richard not hired me, I would probably never have met Xann Henry, Richard's bookkeeper. She would then never have called me later about a job where she also worked. I was hired for that job, and it led to the position I have now.
I remember Richard as generous with laughter and also to his staff. I only worked for him for a few months in the late 90s, yet, I will always be indebted to him, perhaps, as Rev. Pope noted, for reasons neither of us knew at the time.

I worked with Richard way back when he was "baby lawyer". He was always pleasant and good for a laugh or two. So sorry for his family. Bettye Rogers

Richard and I were friends from all the way back when we worked in surgery at Baptist Medical Center in the 70's.I will never forget his laughter and all the fun we had during our times together. He was our attorney when we adopted our son in 1982. He was a wonderful man and we are so shocked and sad that he has passed away. Peace to all of you.

Sorry I couldn't make the memorial. Always a friend and gentleman; regardless of the time between meetings.
I'm proud to say I knew him!
