My brother made friends easily and once you were his friend ....it was for life. He loved to visit his family and friends in Portland and loved it when they came to visit him in Pendleton. He was always willing to help a friend. Richard fondly talked about his friends and how they impacted his life. He often said ...Sally we were the first two and now we are the last two. I hold so many memories of Richard and those he loved. You will always be special Richard and we miss you!

I have known Richard since I was a small child. I grew up with delightful visits to the Green's home. I felt they were our extended family. In reality Richard's mother Jean took her neighbor Lois, my mother, under her wing in the early 1940's as they raised their children in the Portland area. My oldest brother Robert and Richard were near the same age. Lois so appreciated Jean during the years my father, Robert Newham, was away serving in the U.S.Navy during WWII. And so they had a wonderful lifelong friendship.
Lois had a special place in her heart for Richard. Every time my folks went through Pendleton, they visited with Richard and his family. They wrote back and forth until Lois's death in 2003. The last thing she asked me to do was to write not only to Jean, but also to Richard to express her love and appreciation for their years of friendship. I'd say Richard was like a son to my mother. I am sure they are having a wonderful reunion with Vern, Jean, Richard, Donny, Mary Susan, Lois, and her son Robert! I can just hear Vern tinkling the ivories as the rest look on with great joy!
