I worked with Richard at one time. He was a kind person and made every thing easy for me. RIP

Mary, Chris, Bob, Jessie, Shirley,
My condolences on Rich's passing. We spent many happy years together in our teens and early 20's in Revere and around Boston, much of it on my Vespa scooter. Rich joined the Army and I moved to Europe and our lives went onto different paths, raising families and our busy careers. I was thrilled when, a few years ago, we met again on one of your visits up north. Those who were fortunate to have known him will miss his friendship and the joy he brought to our lives. Rest in peace, Rich.

Peace be with you, big brother. Guess God was ready for you to share those jokes of your's with Him. Just know, we will miss you dearly.

Richard was the best guy to be around. He was my first boss at U-Haul. He taught me a lot. My wife worked with him when they were both at the Marketing Company. She enjoyed working around him. Always tried to make work fun. Michelle and I send our condolences to his family.

Richard was one of my favorite clients at Southside Animal Hospital. He was always kind, gentle and compassionate. I wish his family well during this time of sadness.

Mary, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I have some awesome memories of Richard from the U-Haul days. He spoiled me so when I was pregnant with my twins. He kept me laughing always . I know you will miss him dearly, you two will always be the perfect match in my eyes. He loved you more than you'll ever know. He was an awesome man and I cared for him deeply. You take care.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Richard Marshall Cross our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Richard. And to Richard it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Vietnam War while serving in the U.S. Army. Richard, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Richard's family and loved ones.
