Richard was an outstanding employee. Working with the Watson students. You in my thoughts and prayers.
Rick was one of the good guys. He was a wonderful mentor and champion for me in Boy Scout Advancement when he was involved with the council advancement committee and I was a new assistant district advancement chairman. Not only that, but he, like me, was a Bobwhite, the perennial underdogs in Woodbadge training. Several years later, after I moved away, I was compiling a history and database of Squadron 8 in Texas A&M's Corps of Cadets (my husband's and sons' outfit), and was delighted to learn that Rick had spent his freshman year in Sq. 8. Now I find that Rick grew up in Amarillo, where I spent ten years after leaving Ft. Worth. I will always remember Rick as a wonderful, kind man; he will be sorely missed.
My heartfelt sympathy pours out to you and your family. It was a privlege to know Rick. His service to Scouting will always be appreciated. May his soul rest in peace. Please be assured, you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.
In 1957, I knew him as Richard aka fish Sloan. We were in Sqd 8 together. He was a great guy; and we were disappointed when he laid out one year. He returned a year later and rejoined the outfit which was renamed Sqd 7. He meshed with the Class of '62 and bonded with them. My condolences to the family. I can see that he continued to live a quality life that was obvious to us as boys in 1957.
Rick is a dear friend, fellow vet and scouter. He is an awesome personality and I will miss him dearly. Babs wish you my best and luv ya.
I was so lucky to have spent so much time with Richard and his precious family. He was such a great man who brought laughter and a smile to my face every day. It was an honor knowing him and a blessing being acquainted with such a loving family. My prayers are with you.
Love always, Lori
Barbara, I did not know Richard at all...I wish I had. I do know you and I wish to extend my heart-felt condolences to you, Julie, and Richard, Jr. I hope to see all of you at the service tomorrow. I do know what it's like to lose a husband and the father of your children. May God grant you peace and help you through this sad time.
Barbara, I have fond memories of Richard as far back as 3rd grade in San Jacinto. I am sorry that he got this disease. My sincere condolences. Rita Stokes
Rick had such a wonderful positive influence on my life. He was a great influence on many Boy Scouts including my three sons. Rick, you will be missed.
I will miss his joyful laugh,when someone would tease me for being short. His reply was always "stand up " even if I was already standing up. Rest peacefully my friend.
