In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. i worked with Richard at Stow Mills and UNFI in Chesterfield for many years until his retirement. He was sweet and very hard working. He could be gruff but he always smiled at me and we had many wonderful conversations over the years. He told me many about life working doing sugar, heavy machinery equipment and working the draft horse team. He was torn when he moved to Hinsdale to a quieter life but he loved his life and wife dearly. Rest in peace my friend!!!
